A lesson for Alabama and F bomb:

My son is a State caliber track athlete in the mile and the 800m. For 4 years there has been a young man in our region that has beaten my son in the mile every time. That is approximately 16 times over 4 years. This year in the state qualifier, my son finally beat him. The other runner didn’t make excuses. He congratulated my son and then said,
“you realize that when you just beat me, that was the fastest I have ever run the mile.
I just set our school record!”
No excuses, but respect and congratulations!

Good sportsmanship is primary to growth in life .
If you lack the maturity to display it , you may have trouble in other areas of development as well .

...being a great person with integrity will gain you respect.

If you have both recognition and respect, you can accomplish greatness.

This why Dabo's staff pursues great kids who are also solid athletes.

for accepting his defeat like an actual grown up.

I predict the other young man will use the experience to make himself even better.
