Football is like life - it requires perseverance, self-denial, hard work, sacrifice, dedication and respect for authority.
When I was really little, I was on a Pop Warner squad. I did it for a year. My dad was a Pop Warner football coach. I did it because my best friend was also on this cheer squad, and of course I looked up to my sister who was a cheerleader, so I wanted to cheer.
I never learn anything talking. I only learn things when I ask questions.
I was going from Furman to the University of Georgia. I transferred to play football.
Walt Garrison is the ultimate cowboy. A rodeo cowboy growing up in Lewisville, Texas; an Oklahoma State Cowboy as a college football fullback in 1963-65; a Dallas Cowboy as an NFL fullback 1966-74; and still a cowboy at heart, in every way.
Sometimes people say that coach is a winner, but everyone wants to win. You must know how to behave in victory and in defeat, to look after what is our sport, football.
Vicente del Bosque
Baseball, boxing, handball - sooner or later every game gets compared to narrative, but only in football are the plays perfectly linear, drawn up with letters, and only in football is the field itself lined like a sheet of notebook paper.

I am not thinking about life after football, but I know it will be another life, another world.
I was meant to be a composer and will be I'm sure. Don't ask me to try to forget this unpleasant thing and go play football – please.
When I chose Mississippi State, of course I dreamed about being a big-time college football player. But I'm so grateful that actually became a reality - and it became a reality in a small town.
I had actually gone to a church-related college, but I went on a football scholarship, not because of any interest in the church.

When you spend a lot of money on one player, you want him to prove himself, but the way football works, one day you can be good, the next you can be bad, and the next after that, you can be very bad. I have come to Manchester City to work very hard and to help my friends make Manchester City great.
