"Life is filled with quick sprinting moments and lengths of endurance filled chapters. The best part about that lesson is that the same competitive nature any sport has, can be found in schooling, careers and life in general. Life is like a game, in that I have the opportunity to wake up and compete everyday to be a better me." - President, Nick Call
