The Chess match which Football truly is…….

The game of football here in America, isn’t just about big guys putting a hurt on each other, it’s not even about one or two guys for each team carrying the whole team, it’s about a whole team including the coaching staff, putting together a winning strategy from week to week for each team they face, with the players executing that strategy for the team to win each week.

Each team enter each week against a different opponent weekly, they spend the week prior to game day to practice, look at film and execute the game plan to a “T”, now granted practice is a bit different than the real game, as there are a lot of variables you just can’t practice for, like a player on the other team having a career day, which does happen from time to time, but in practice you can kind of get ready for it? Just that sometimes everything you do, just isn’t enough to stop that player, the game of football is like the game of chess, with the coaching staff calling which play to run for whatever situation and the players being the chess pieces that execute the game plan into a winning strategy.

The beauty of football is, no matter where you are in the standings, you can show up on game day, have a great attitude, execute the game plan to a “T” and win that game for that week, because you just executed one or two more plays than the other team, football is all about execution and strategy, with the team that does both of these the best will win the game, don’t get me wrong you still need talented players at each position, that do their jobs well and help contribute like the other players on the team, as each player does their job 100%, that gives the team a better chance to win the game.

When you compare football to real life, you see a lot of similarities, these similarities are the key ingredients to walking your path along your journey of life, with confidence to be better and stronger with every step, the only difference between life and football is, football is a game played one day a week and we live our lives every day of our journey.

Just like in football, when we live our lives the right way, execute our strategies to a “T”, we can make our lives seem easy, by being happy and having the confidence to be better and stronger on our paths of our journey of life, in football they look at films to fix their mistakes and be better next game, we in life sometimes have to look back in our lives, see where we went wrong, to fix ourselves to be better in the future, the more we practice this routine, the better we all will be on our paths of our journey of life.

” Football is like the game of chess, just that the pieces of the game are real live Individuals”

” The ingredients to a winning football team is execution and strategy, these same ingredients will help us all walk our paths along our journey of life with confidence to be better and stronger everyday”

” the quarterback is the king piece on the chess board, the other players protect that piece for a better chance to winning that game”
