Bench players (substitutes) don't always get a chance to play quality minutes, but they are still expected to be ready for game competition. It's a tough and challenging position to accept.
A third string quarterback for Ohio State was more than ready when his number was called, leading his team to the College Football Playoffs by winning the Big Ten championship game against Wisconsin. He hadn't played all season!
Will you be ready when your number is called? Prepare by working hard every day without complaining or making excuses, and yes, capitalize on your opportunity with a quality performance. Be someone your team can count on regardless of the circumstance!
