All set on a foundation of strong character and integrity that beseeches one to do the right thing just because it is the right thing to do
And so you may ask, “Why follow a code of such standard?”
Because I believe I can make a difference
And because I believe it
Then it is something I should do
Because it is something I should do
Then it is something I must do
And because it is something I must do
Then it is something I will do
So I toil and sweat both through the good days and the bad
Chipping away at any weakness that following the code may reveal within
Creating inspiration from athletic experiences of days gone by
From future experiences that have yet to occur
And from those who may someday attempt to walk the same path
Never giving up
Never giving in
And never swaying—but for a moment
From the Code of a True Champion
“Why?” again, one might ask
Simply—Because I can!!!
