 What happened yesterday is history. What happens tomorrow is a mystery. What we do today makes a difference.  
-Nick Saban 

I have never been more proud of this program's F19HT than I was last Friday night. The final score will never tell the story of that game and in truth that game is not final. While we can improve in our execution and we do in fact have things that we must work on and improve in, this team showed the fight, composure, and chemistry that will be needed to achieve our goals. I'm convinced that you want to get to a place where we can be our best. That starts this week in film and practice. If the game this past Friday seemed faster than practice did then it is our job to improve that. If there was a moment from the game that a small detail seemed to make a big difference then today is the day that we can make the difference. 

Who knows what tomorrow holds? If you want to make a difference for your future, start today with this plan. Try focusing on your family and what they need you to do to help.  Make it a priority to outwork the teams that you will play this year regardless of who you play this week. Commit to each other and make sure you are taking care of your business in the classroom and off the field so that you can be here for them. Try to understand that if this is about you and not us, then you are missing the profits this game can yield. Don't be satisfied with being comfortable either. Learn to love the strain, sacrifice, and service that the game of football offers you. Satisfaction will come through seeing this through! Stay the course, fight the good fight! You are getting better and your experience against programs that have 14 state championships combined and systematic advantages too many to count, will absolutely serve you well this season and many more to come in your life. It won't be easy but if it were easy it wouldn't be worth having.  We can all live with the mystery of tomorrow as long as we can look each other in the eyes and there is no mystery there. You are on the doorstep. Take the next step, dial up your A game, focus on US and Panther On!
