I didn't play the game right because I saw a reward at the end of the tunnel.
My style is I work hard at it. I feel like I'm prepared every day.
I was taught you never, ever disrespect your opponent or your teammates or your organization or your manager and never, ever your uniform.
A lot of people say this honor validates my career, but I didn't work hard for validation.
Get your work in. Work hard at it. Give it your best effort. And if you get an opportunity, be ready for it. That's respect for the game.
