"The most important lesson I've learned from sports is how to be not only a gracious winner, but a good loser as well. Not everyone wins all the time, as a matter of fact, no one wins all the time. Winning is the easy part, losing is really tough. But, you learn more from one loss than you do from a million wins. You learn alot about sportsmanship. I mean, it's really tough to shake the hand of someone who beat you, and it's even harder to do it with a smile. If you can learn to do this and push through the pain, you will remember what that moment is like the next time you win and have a better sense of how those competitors around you feel. This experience will teach you a lot on and off the field!" - Amy Van Dyken

"I always tell kids, you have two eyes and one mouth. Keep two open and one closed. You never learn anything if you're the one talking." - Gordie Howe
