“Our outlook as with every season is to play within ourselves, and be the best possible team we can be. That means taking a team first approach to the game. Believing and investing in our parts, individually and collectively, will produce growth within the team. Hopefully during this process of learning and growth, the SUM of our parts will add up to an equivalent greater than our opponents parts. If we do that, we will be a successful team in 2013, regardless of how many games we win or lose. I am simply proud to be part of this team, and to be associated with the players who play for this team.”
