through volunteerism the students athletes we celebrate to the US Army and

the team and not just athletic teams but their families schools extracurricular
programs and civic organizations like every armory soldier and certainly
Baseball Hall of Fame they understand the importance of every team member in
accomplishing the mission and that victory is only achieved when everyone
does their job and doesn’t well anyone can celebrate being the best
athletically but when the US Army pro football hall of fame came together to

representatives for being here today the entire / football hall of fame and the
force Hills High School for letting me participate in today’s ceremony I am
proud to be here today as part of this award presentation the road to the Hall

that level of excellence requires a variety of skills dedication to teamwork
adaptability and versatility skills instilled in every US Army soldier that
is why this partnership is a perfect fit and why we are pleased to honor today’s
recipient and pass on some of the lessons that I have learned that will
help all of you in your given pathway and I wanted to share a little bit about
leadership a little bit about commitment and the story that came to my mind was it really wasn’t a good story and it
actually happened yesterday as i was trying to get here yesterday I was on television I was
doing some ESPN work obviously you guys probably didn’t see it because you
should have been at school but just finishing up but as my day ended on ESPN
and as I got ready to go to the airport I had a couple hours to wait for the
flight so I had did some work and started to do some things I didn’t pay
attention but my flight was delayed so I went over to the person I told him well
what time is this flight taking off because I’ve got a connection in DC
because I’ve got to get to Pittsburgh because then i got to drive an hour from
Pittsburgh I’ve got to go to and high school and the lady you really didn’t
care about all of that she said well I’m sorry for you and those high school kids
because you’re not going to be getting to Pittsburgh tomorrow so wait wait is
it what are you talking about she said well the connection you won’t make it so
I said oh my gosh and at that moment I thought about the dedication the team
worth the commitment that I had made to be here in front of you all
and so I told the lady i said no i will be at the school tomorrow we need to
find a way to make it happen and at that point when she saw the determination in
my eyes she turned to me and she said well let’s figure out how i can get you
there and we figured out a plan that I could drive from Hartford Connecticut to
New York jump on a plane in New York get the Pittsburgh drive through Pittsburgh
and rush hour traffic on the side of the road so that I could be here in front of you all today fortunately I
know a couple police officers in Pittsburgh so I wasn’t a problem but it
stands to tell you about the commitment the dedication that you have to have not
only in sports but in life because when other people are counting on you it’s
imperative it’s critical that you be there that you’ll be accountable as a
person as a man as a woman and those are the things that you all have to
understand going in life it’s not about the things that you say it’s about the
things that you do and that’s why it’s so important to have that character and
your character is built by the things you say matching up with the things that
you do I made a commitment to be here and I was going to be here and that’s
what that dedication that commitment that teamwork is all about and so that’s
what I want to leave you guys with just to know that I moved heaven and earth to
be in front of you are today because it was that important to me so that I can
be here for her because she’s done everything in the world that she was
supposed to do so I needed to do everything possible to be in front of
you today and now it’s my pleasure to introduce to you your finalists for the
US Army pro football hall of fame award for excellence Courtney Cirie Kourtney is currently a member of Forest
Hills High School’s volleyball basketball and track teams additionally

this is a little shaky good morning students faculty administration staff
family and guests I would like to thank the US Army for supporting high school
athletics and academics and for recognizing me and the other 19
finalists for the US Army pro football hall of fame award for excellence
excellence is not only at the heart of the u.s. Pro Football Hall of Fame Award
but it’s also a quality embedded in Forest Hills as I scan the audience I
see excellence in the faces of many students who excel in the classroom in a
variety of extracurriculars I see it in the teachers who go above and beyond
each and every day I see it in our community that supports its school and
student athletes I see it in the fine individuals on the stage who embody
excellence in character and in their works and lastly and most importantly I
see excellence in my parents who lead by example and human still qualities of
hard work and excellence in their children I would also like to thank all
of my coaches who have taught me great lessons of sportsmanship leadership and
how to be a good teammate excellence is the daily pursuit pursuing excellence
begins with character and a positive attitude excellence is not perfection it
is a commitment to becoming the best point can meet people who achieve
excellence experience setbacks like Miss foul shots a lesson perfect test score a
tough loss and occasional thoughts of doubt these are natural experiences
however those who seek excellence are not defined by missteps they learn from
them and commit to becoming better excellence is the tradition not only
adorns our hallways and appears on the school stationery but it also embodies
the values instilled in the students of Forest Hills High School excellence is a
mental mindset one that recognizes blessings by is individuals for their
strengths and truly believes that the means by which we pursue excellence must
be as pure as the ends we seek whether in the classroom in a competitive
environment or in the community on the weekends a
person’s character remains constant especially if excellence becomes her
pursuit because of my parents the many others who have shaved me along the way
and the school and community in which I proudly live I am blessed to say that
excellence is our tradition and excellence is my daily pursuit I humbly
accept this honor because of the many who contributed to it God for whose
purpose I live the coaches who have fed my passion and shaped my athleticism
teammates who support is invaluable the school of use mission drives us all and
my parents and family who taught me to love to respect and to insist on
excellence on behalf of all of you I say thank you to mr. Jerome Bettis 2015 hall
of fame inductee I wish you great joy on Saturday august eighth as you join those
