Drew T: DRIVE
Drive: The value drive to me means to not give up. Also drive means to me that you got to keep going. In life, if you’re a sports player you need to have drive or else you will not succeed.
When Babe was seven years old, his parents sent him to an orphanage due to his misbehavior. Babe had to train to be a baseball player by a guy who worked there. That guy’s name was Brother Matthias. Matthias saw Babe’s talent in baseball so then he told a few managers in the MLB. The manager that ended up recruiting him was Jack Dunn, the manager for the Baltimore Orioles. Babe uses the value drive by even though he was sent to an orphanage he still kept trying and pulling through. Babe’s work payed off.
This value relates to me because every time I used to be losing I would not do my best at all. I show this value by now, not giving up when I’m losing and help my team win games. Now I start to win a lot more games because I show drive. This value gets me closer to God because when I show drive God gets happy, and it makes me happy too.

Lee M: CHARACTER
Character: This value to me means not to listen to what other people tell you to do. Meaning to do things your way. And what fits your style.
I chose Jackie Robinson. He attended UCLA and was one of five children. In 1947 he made his debut with the Brooklyn Dodgers who are now known as the Los Angeles Dodgers. He played second baseman and was also the first African American ever to play in the Major Leagues. Also in 1947 he won rookie of the year and in 1949 he was all so MVP. In 1955 the won the World Series and he got a Championship ring.
This value relates to me because sometimes I do things my own way and not the way others expected me to do It and I hope I keep on doing it that way. So sometimes you might see me or others doing things different then the way you do It and I think that is creative. It brings me closer to God because God gave us different Characteristics. Also take Jackie Robinson for an instant because he has a different throwing form then Eric Hosmer and that’s cool. CHARACTER PASS IT ON.
