Why Play Football by Steve Wherry

Why Play Football 
What pushes a player to give his all?
Why does he yearn to carry the ball?
Why does the athlete accept the test?
What motivates a person to do his best?

Why does a tackle block for a back?
What is this quality that losers lack?
What makes him endure the scrapes and... cuts?
What is the thing a coach calls guts?

How does the runner find pay-dirt?
What makes a lineman play when he's hurt?
Why after practice is it hard to spit?
Why do some players never say quit?

What drives the player to consistently win?
What makes him get up and hit again?

What brings the athlete clippings and fame?
How did his team win that last game?
Why does he constantly drill and sweat?
When it's over, why is there no regret?

Why can't just anyone play this game?
Why do some quit and others remain?
Why does an athlete sacrifice his time?
Why does he have this sport on his mind?

Why are there tears after the game that is lost?
How does he practice in the cold and the frost?
What makes him fight and have so much dare?
What is it worth, why does he care?

How does he catch when his hands feel like ice?
Why is he obsessed to pay the price?
Why handle the pressure day after day?
What makes him tick, why does he play?

These questions can be answered in just one word.
It's a small simple word you've many times heard.
What is this feeling that burns down inside?
It's that one great quality, that thing they call...
