To The Sports We Love Most by Gracie Rouland

In small towns in Minnesota, sports are a big deal

Early mornings, late nights, and lots of dedication

At young ages, we learn to develop a work ethic

The pressure and stress buildup over time

Some fall to the pressure, and some rise above it

We strive for success, even when it isn’t achieved

Each day we are pushed until we have nothing left to give

When we are at our lowest we are reminded of our love for the game

We rise from the help of our teammates, coaches, and fans

The game mentality remains in our heads, always

You never realize how much you love something until it’s gone

You’d give anything just to play one more game

To the sports we love most, thank you
