Perseverance and hard work is a key attribute for all athletes no matter what sport. Imagine being pushed to your limit and beyond day in and day out. Every guy at one point wanted to be some kind of professional athlete. Despite the fact that they don’t want to now, they still wanted to be one at a certain time in their life. They might have wanted to be a football player, basketball player or maybe even a baseball player, but do they have what it really takes to become a profession athlete. If you are afraid of getting a couple of broken bones then you should consider another profession.

Reggie Bush suffered from a torn posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) in his left knee. Even though Reggie Bush is an athlete the pain still hurts the same but he is just willing to fight through it if it means that they can get to play. Right now he is excelling in the Detroit Lion, hoping to help lead them to the Superbowl. The perseverance to always come back is what makes the best athletes. When most players come back from an injury, they get scared of being put in the same situation and start playing bad. For example when a football player comes back from an injury, they run away from the tackle to avoid another injury. When a running back runs inside and tries to get as much yards as possible, they are able to put the team in a better position. The player that runs away from tackle ends up losing yards, and the…
