5:30AM. That is when Chris Grays’ alarm went off, every Monday through Thursday, for the entire summer in order to make the 7AM class at Revolution Athletics. He worked on getting better, building up weaknesses, solidifying strengths, persevering through any obstacles that arose.
One of those weaknesses he placed upon himself was size, and having the confidence to play at his body weight and height. But this is was a false weakness, one created by the mind to restrict himself from his full potential. And through perseverance and training, Chris overcame this mental barrier, and carried this confidence through the season, and is (at the time of this article) Second in Long Island Varsity Lacrosse Points, with 75 goals and 21 assists.
