Last night, all of the team members and the majority of the staff attended the Air Force versus Fresno State basketball game. This was an exciting break from the stress of competing. We all took the opportunity to get to know one another in a more relaxed environment and without the stress of fighting for a place on the team. We have approximately 50 competitors, vying for a spot on the 40 person team. Our coaching staff is consistently evaluating our performance. Each aspect of our involvement with the team can influence their decision as to who will make the first cut.
Affability, accountability, and ability to perform the events, all play a significant role in making the team for 2013.
In that order as well. Each coach has experience and expertise which they bring to the table in order to help them figure out which of us may have abilities that can be developed over the next few months.
We are all playing to win. And we all want to represent our branch of service with dignity and respect.
Through the combination of both team sports and individual events, I am personally inspired to perform at a higher level than before coming here.
I just finished my second day of shooting, and now it's off to attempt seated volleyball again for the next few hours. Hopefully, my pain won't be too high, but I'll just have to wait and see.
