Losing to Win | ESPN SportsCenter SC Feature - Motivation Monday #19 {May 12, 2014}

Every Monday I post quotes and/or videos to inspire and motivate you through your week. Get ready for a great week!

If you are a former athlete or coach, you will truly appreciate today's post. Let the feelings of appreciation, pride, and protectiveness you feel as you watch today's video fuel your fire as you work with others this week. 

Carroll Academy, in Huntingdon Tennessee, is an Adolescent Intensive Day Treatment Program operated by the Carroll County Juvenile Court. Even though the Carroll Academy Lady Jags have lost games with scores like 80-8 or 65-7, they use sports as a way to win in the game of life. 

One of the girls was asked about a 91-4 loss that she and her team "suffered"
through. Her response, "We didn't suffer. I'm just glad to be part of a team. 
This is like a family, I've never had a real family before."

May you fight for your students like the coaches and teachers fight for the kids at Carroll Academy. Be awesome this week!
