We Will Win


"Ara Parseghian" How his teams won.

If you listen to me and the coaches we will win.  Just look at my fist.  When I make a fist it's strong and you can't tear it apart.  As long as there is unity there's strength.  We must become so close with the bonds of loyalty and sacrifice, so deep with the conviction of the sole purpose, that no one, no group, no thing can tear us apart.  If your loyalty begins to fade, it becomes a little easier to go out and have a beer, to slack off a little in practice, to listen to someone who will tell you that you should be playing on the first string in front of someone else.  If that happens, this fist becomes a limp hand.

How do we accomplish success?  You have to make a believer out of me that you want to be a football player!  And I must make you a believe I am the best capable leader for you!  What I will promise you is that we will be the best conditioned football team Notre Dame has ever had.  I will also promise is that my door will always be open to talk about anything.  I promise never to criticize a player publicly, but, I expect the same in return.  I willbe fair with you as will the staff.
