It’s a awesome feeling when you truly believe that you going to be successful regardless of the situation, regardless of the scoreboard, you going to be successful because you put in all the time, all the effort, all the hardwork and you know it’s going to pay off.
These inspirational words you just read came from none other than Apollos Hester, starting running back of the East View High School Patriots. Hester gave a passionate interview as his team overcame a 14 point halftime deficit to beat the Vandegrift Vipers, 42-41. The video has quickly became a viral sensation, reaching over 1 million views in a span of two days. The high school sensation credits his coach for the speech he gave his team before the 2nd half of play began. If you or any one of your friends are feeling defeated and rejected, this is one video that can brighten up anyone’s day and help them bring the fight to any obstacle they facing. Athlete or not, Hester’s contagious positive spirit shows why the fountain of youth in today’s generation are nothing to sleep on at all.
