Please excuse me while I go wipe away some tears. It sure is dusty in here. Man, hearing him deliver that line hit me hard in the heart.

Football is something that brings people together, gives us something to get excited about, moves the needle and provides us something to work towards for a common goal.

Coronavirus put all of that at risk, but we’re making great progress in this war. Soon, we’ll have complete and total victory.
