“Sometimes in life you’re going to start slow. And that’s ok.”
Need some inspiration? Struggling with a recent setback? Think life has handed you a bad hand lately? Then you need to listen to this rousing ‘Rudy’esque’ speech from Apollos Hester. And who is Apollos Hester? Oh he’s just a high school football player from East View High School in Georgetown, Texas.
“That’s all it takes to be successful…an attitude.”
After a thrilling win where Apollos Hester’s team overcame a 14-point deficit at halftime to defeat Vandegrift High, 42-41, he turned a typical post-game interview with TWC News Austin into an epic inspirational show, delivering lessons applicable to life as well as football.
“It’s an awesome feeling when you truly believe that you’re going to be successful regardless of the situation…Win or lose, we decided it was going to be OK. We were going to be alright. We were going to keep smiling.”
This teenager reminds me that God speaks through many people. His wisdom gives me hope for us all. Now what are you going to do?
