Got a little something special for this preview.......not going to go into boring statistical details or matchup details. My goal in this post is to inspire.....and what better way to do it than with pre-game speeches.
Enjoy...and Happy Thanksgiving.
Here's another, I think I used this back when the basketball team was making their run. Please excuse the redundancy.
