There is no road of flowers leading to glory. What lays there instead is persistence, hard work, hope, grit, failure, success, and heart. If you listen closely you can hear something very special. It started from nothing and fought through heartbreak and defeat to be heard. It is a collective roar of determination that echoes “never surrender.” There is nothing easy about what has been accomplished by this group of amazing players, coaches, owners, and staff. Call it a comeback, a cinderella story, a lesson in redemption. Call it what you want, I call it fucking beautiful. Thank you to Seattle Reign Football Club for an incredible season. It’s been a privilege to see you rise above. See you in 2015. Let it Reign.
