Future Champion

Hayden had his first football game and I sadly missed it.
This was the conversation at home later that day:
Mom: "How was your game, Hayden?"
Hayden: "We played GREAT!"
Mom: "Yeah? Did you win?"
Hayden: "No, but we only lost by seven."
Older brother listening in: "Touchdowns, Hayden...
you lost by SEVEN touchdowns!"

"Winning is great, sure, but if you are really going to do something in life,
the secret is learning how to loose.
Nobody goes undefeated all the time.
If you can pick up after a crushing defeat
and go on to win again,
you are going to be a champion someday."
~Wilma Rudolph,
the first American woman runner to win three gold medals at a single Olympics

Future Champion:
Hayden McConkie Wilcox
