"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"

The mother of Kansas City Chief NFL lineman Laurent Duvernay-Tardif said she taught her kids at a young age that dreams don't mean anything if you don't follow up on them and try to make them happen.

What dreams came true for Laurent? While he has many accomplishments as a professional athlete, he also has the distinction of becoming the first medical doctor to ever play in the NFL. 

Who are the biggest influences in your life? In Laurent's case, he said it was his mom. But how about you? Who pushes you to be better?  Is it your parents? Is it a relative?  A teacher or coach? Someone you have read about or studied?

Regardless of who serves as your biggest influence, there are certain factors like sacrifice, service, humility, dedication, and hard work that make the biggest difference between accomplishment and falling short.

It's never to early to think about what you want to be and how you plan to get there!
