Each Warrior wants to leave the mark of his will, his signature, on important acts he touches. This is not the voice of ego but of the human spirit, rising up and declaring that it has something to contribute to the solution of the hardest problems, no matter how vexing!
~ Pat Riley

Over the next six months, these players will practice and compete to be the very best they possibly can be and win their local title.
