"I’ve learned a lot about myself in the last two years. One of the things I’ve learned is it’s easier to accept your fate — whatever the coaches’ decisions are, or injuries — when you know that you can’t control them. You accept that. I’ve also learned that if I’m getting better, then I’m pretty happy. If I feel like I’m challenged and improving and growing as a person and a player and enjoying it — those are the only things I feel like matter. Come gameday, I can’t control what the coaches want or what the game needs. All I can do is what I do in practice every day. And I enjoy going to practice. I love it. In the past, on other teams, I’ve heard people say going to practice is like going to a job. I don’t know if it’s a maturity thing, or an appreciation thing, or just an unconditional love for the game, but I love going to training every day… even the worst days are never that bad. If you can’t bring yourself to go out there and literally do what you love, then… I don’t know why people do it. It’s really easy to say “I do what I love,” but it’s another thing to actually do what you love and love what you do."
