Where Tom Hanks and Coach K Intersect

This is a reminder to all of our debaters to keep working at debate every day.  Never put off work for tomorrow because those things never get done.  We've had success, we've had struggles, but in the midst of it all nothing matters more than consistent hard work.  The coaches are impressed: When we have work time at practice or discussions over arguments -- everybody is engaged and thoughtful.  Debate isn't always easy, which reminds us of this movie scene where Tom Hanks explains, "The hard is what makes it great."

Or, as Coach K, the coach of the Duke Basketball team reminds us - you have to win the day, every day.
