So tonight at football practice, I saw something different in my son Maximus. During conditioning at the end of practice he typically focuses on working hard and doing his best to be at the front of the pack if he can manage...he's the youngest one on his team so I always tell him that he needs to work extra hard and earn his right to be the young guy on the team...because I don't ever want him to have it in his head that he's younger so it's expected of him to be slower or less of an impact player. I believe in the exact opposite.
Needless to say, during conditioning I was watching and after the first 2 races he decided to come in closer to the end-because he saw a teammate that was struggling to keep up with the pack. So he ran behind his teammate with his hand on the back of his shoulder and I'm not sure what exactly he was saying but I'm sure it was along the lines of 'you can do this' or 'you got this' 'come on!' He did it the last 4-5 times they had to run up and down the field. It made me so proud to see my little boy realize that at the end of the day, he himself wasn't all that mattered. ❤️🙏🏼. There is no 'I' in TEAM! All I could think to myself in that moment was 'wow! He gets IT!!!!!'
Maximus Lee Curry...you son, are truly 'The Greatest' 😘
