“You should never think so highly of yourself to the point you only see you and not the team. The less you see of yourself, the more you see of the team. The more you see of the team, the more you will sacrifice for the team. The more you sacrifice for the team, the stronger the team!”

- Stone Mountain coach Dante Ferguson

True dat Sportsnut…. That’s why the Green & Gold win year in & year out… The same can be said of the D1 team to our West in Crimson & White… & it’s hard to believe they only recently got their first Hypeman Trophy winner… Because it’s all about TEAM first!
