At the heart of Becoming a True Champion, character stands as one of the more important foundational principles. Its innate ability to foster good sportsmanship, along with so many other positive attributes, gives it unique importance to the competitive world of sports, and life in general. With the capability of strengthening a person (or persons) from the inside out, its practice cannot be underestimated as a tool for reaching a higher plateau of thought, effort, and compassion (as you will see).
It is difficult for me to express in words the emotional feelings I experienced when the attributes discussed above, Good Character and Good Sportsmanship, were demonstrated by the young collegiate athletes in the following video. It is even more impressive, as the video demonstrates, when these qualities are so freely shown and given to someone truly in need. It is simply heartwarming.
