What An Opportunity

What’s in a name?

What’s in a name?

Everything and nothing but something worth noting.

It is the only word on the back of the jersey.

The 2nd field you fill on most applications.

The family name.

What’s in a name?

Everything and nothing but something worth noting.

Your name defines you. It brings to mind a history.

A grandfather…father…sibling…cousin that shared that surname.

It is the moniker that cannot be erased; the designation that cannot be forgotten.

You are what your name says you are. Or not. Guess it matters what your name says about you.

It is the portion of your personality that cannot be swayed. Or can it? That is up to you.

So again, what’s in a name?

For when you step onto that field, you are a number and a name.

You are an idea and a position. A collision of talent and placement.

And when the game is over, all of your effort will be attributed to a number and a name.

Are you the one with little aspiration? The star? The glue guy? The overachiever? The next man up?

All of that will not fit across the back of your jersey.

The only label that appears is a name.

So I ask you: what will your name say about you?

Everything and nothing but something worth noting.
