WE’RE NOT DONE by E’lon Mack


Playing on Friday nights is the absolute best thing we ever do. The atmosphere is unreal. It’s a war we prepare a whole week for. We won the battle. The win, our first win, was the beginning of our new reign. And because it’s my senior year, getting that win meant a lot.

When Jay Allen took that hand off in the end zone, late in the fourth quarter, the realization sunk in, the game was ours.

I was overwhelmed with joy, almost on the verge of tears. I didn’t cry. I found Antonio and gave him a huge hug.

“We did it,” I said, “we aren’t done.”

Seeing the team with that confidence after our win is what we want to see after every game for the rest of the season.

Players smiling

Players smiling.

Coaches happy.

We’re not done.

We can’t get complacent.  We have another game next weekend. All we can do is get up in the morning, watch our film,  see our mistakes, and get better.
