There were a few things I wasn’t expecting to say this month. One of these things is “my team might not control our own destiny in making the playoffs for the Landmark Conference this year. The second and more surprising thing is “The New York Yankees (my team) are one game away from heading to the World Series”.
I feel like the Yankees have stunned everyone this year. A wild card team has made it all the way to the ALCS game and possibly all the way to the World Series. I’m not saying it has not happened before, I’m sure it has. I care more about the sheer GRIT the Yankees have shown throughout the postseason. Think about it, they have been at the bottom, behind in all their series game and have come back to win. That’s saying something.
This time last season my team had the same grit. We were undefeated in the conference with a secured spot in playoffs. However, this season we are in the total opposition at 3-2 in the conference. If we do not win our next game, we for sure do not control our destiny. That’s a scary thought. We have to find our grit again.
I’m not ready for my season to be over in two weeks. I literally cried at the thought of that today. There are probably other players on my team that feel the same way. So with that being said, it’s time to ramp it up. Especially because our opponent, Susquehanna, is in the same position as we are going into the final stretch of this season. Saturday is going to be a battle and for sure a good game.
There are a few things we have to do as a team to make sure we bring home this win. The first goal we have to set for ourselves in to play a full game. If we go out flat we will lose, or it will at least make it harder for us to win. We also have to make sure that we are communicating and cutting off the ball. Getting a high volume of shots off will also be important. If we do this we will be able to get up the field and score. If we dig deep we will be unstoppable.
My suggestion, if anyone wants to watch some serious grit turn on the Yankees.
