We see all the names, their stats and current teams.
Their journeys in the game are all similar, yet extremely unique.
Behind every player selected is a support system like no other.
Draft day memories are special and very satisfying, but now the real work begins.
There are no guarantees.
Embrace the grind.
Play to your identity and leave a lasting impression.
The new chapter has yet to be written.
Your character and will to compete will separate you from others.
You can only control what you can control.
The numbers don’t mean anything at the next level.
The round you were selected in, your stats from the year before are insignificant.
Everything is new, everything is different, except for your character and will to compete.
The intangibles you possess will pave the way.
Don’t preoccupy yourself with things outside of your control.
The political and business side of the game may unfortunately derail your progression as a player.
Don’t let that ruin your passion for the game.
It’s never too late.
You have three months before the real work begins.
Get yourself in the best shape of your life.
Put in the work.
Get better every day.
If you’re not someone else will.
The real work begins.
Prove people wrong.
Prove people right. Prove you belong. Don’t let yourself down. Don’t sabotage your dreams with negative thoughts.
Trust your ability. Trust your identity.
Your dream is right in front of you.
Stay true to yourself. Your support system will always be there no matter what.
Leave it all the ice, have no regrets. The real work has just begun.
