The Super Bowl
There are many triumphs and, well, just slumps when being a fan of the Seahawks. I have been a fan all of my life and the last time that we made it to the Super Bowl I was in the 8th grade (roughly 8 years ago). At that time sports weren't as important to me and I cheered them on, but wasn't nearly as invested as I am now. From the time that Coach Pete Carroll took the club over four years ago I knew that this day was coming. He wrote a book about his philosophy when he came to the Seahawks and I grabbed it off the shelf and read it. His core philosophy is about competition and constantly striving to become the best not only athlete, but person that you can. I bought in immediately. I have shaped much of my coaching and life philosophy based on his principles. It is such a positive way to live your life and great way to start reaching your potential. Coach Carroll has completely gotten his guys to buy in and they have began to become the best version of themselves. We face a great challenge against the "high-powered offense" (as one the students in my sixth grade practicum told me) of Denver, but I am excited about being able to compete against the best team in the NFL. Go Hawks!
