Rest Day Read September 14, 2010

The School of Block
There is Honor on the line.
There is Glory in the trenches.
Honor in the protection of what's ours and in the destruction of what's theirs.
Honor in the 50-79 numbers, invisible to all but coaches and blood relation.
Honor in aggressively getting in the defender's way. Line it up, tear them down, repeat.
Glory in a facemask decorated in turf and mud.  Hands bruised. Fingers battered. Knuckles bloodied.
Glory in watching the backside of your running back move down the field.
Glory in crushing the will of the opponent.
The School of Block
