Last week, ESPN’s Herm Edwards stopped by the University of Alabama to take in some of the Crimson Tide’s fall football practice. After practice, he had a chance to speak to the team, with the intent of both humbling and inspiring the players — I think he accomplished those goals.
Edwards talks about working hard, sacrifice, his biggest accomplishment as a player, and more. Here is the speech, in two clips:
It’s good stuff, but at times Herm made a few awkward points. These players haven’t earned anything yet? How about the ones who have won multiple rings?
Regardless, there are a lot of things that any player can take from this speech — definitely worth the listen.
