Anyone who knows me will tell you that I am a HUGE softie. I get emotional at the smallest of things. I see pictures from our son’s childhood…tears.
I see puppy videos…tears.
Those reunions of soldiers returning to see their families…I’m a mess.
AND ANYTHING I see or read about someone overcoming adversity, or living their dream…waterworks.
So, if you’re like me, I’m gonna warn you about this video.
Jett Bush grew up playing football in Texas. And like a lot of boys in his shoes, he had dreams of one day playing for the University of Texas Longhorns. This dream was so big, he turned down scholarship offers from the like of the Air Force Academy and Harvard to pursue his ambition as a walk-on to the team.
This is a hard road to take.
But for Jett Bush, it just paid off.
And I’m in tears-ESPECIALLY since they included his dad in this video. As the parent of an athlete trying to walk-on to a team, this hit too close.
Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
