I remember my first year of playing football when I was 12 years old, I had a pass thrown to me and it hit my facemask and fell to the ground. Everyone in the crowd laughed at me, including Karen the cheerleader I was in love with. In my shame I vowed that I would never drop another pass again. Throughout JR. High, JV and varsity football, I never dropped another pass.
Now if a 12 year old, no talent kid at a small single A school can have this resolve. Why can't these world class professional athletes like Ike or Mike Wallace simply catch the ball. It's the easiest part of their game.
