Professional football players aren’t acting like role models these days. In fact, it feels like current NFL stars are setting the sport back a bit. That’s why it’s always refreshing to meet a young football player who wants to take the future of the sport in the right direction.
Apollos Hester is a wide receiver for the East View High School football team in Georgetown, Texas, where they take football seriously. The high school team was able to win their latest game with an amazing comeback (the game ended 42-41).
Hester’s words proved just as good as his moves on the field during an interview after the game with local sports reporter Lauren Mickler. It’s such an inspirational speech that it could have you ready to run through a brick wall.
Now THAT was inspirational. I was doing push-ups halfway through the video. What a guy! He’ll go far in life with that attitude.
