The Humble Hero

Taylor finished his basketball season last week. All but one game, they lost BIG TIME, like by 20 points minimum. Our family attended his end-of-the-season party last weekend. The coach recognized each player with an award and a candy bar. John and I had to laugh when we heard Taylor's award. He got the "Humble Hero" award. What?

The coach said that whenever the team started to do well or made a nice play, Taylor would always remind them, "guys, let's not get cocky". Coach seemed to be impressed with that; we thought it was hilarious--especially considering they were never even close to winning a game.

"Don't get cocky and start thinking we're all THAT because we just made a nice shot; we were 23 points behind and now we're ONLY 21 behind."

Always a good reminder for all of us. --Don't get cocky!

We're still laughing.

  1. Hey,if that kid's a LeSueur and he managed to have any humility when it comes to sports, then he deserves all the awards in the world! Ha! Okay, maybe I was just wasn't too humble because I grew up with all those boys!
