“Before the Snap”

If alignment and assignment are in the forefront,
I’ll hit homers and get more bunts.
Even if I get hit and my chest throbs,
I’ll anchor down and do my best job.

For I have tweaked selection,
And I seek perfection,
My opponent won’t figure me out and I’ll keep ‘em guessing.

VIEW IT, DO IT… then the next solution is execution.
Winning my gap is my contribution.

Find the ball, get the call
Align assign…
Expect a change, respect the game, and then claim the prize as mine.

Stay on task and ignore the crap,
90 percent of the game is won before the snap.
