The Varsity Jersey

It is why we go to every practice
It is why we work our hardest in every drill
It is why we never quit
It is why we live with the ups and downs
It is why we keep our heads up
It is why we stick our chests out
It is why we train in the off-season
It is why we are always watching
It is why we are always learning
It is why we play on rainy days
It is why we take every charge
It is why we dive for every loose ball
It is why we work harder than anyone else
It is why we love the game
