Confidence is contagious – Sports Quotes by Vince Lombadi

Sports Quotes by Vince Lombardi

Coaches who can outline plays on a black board are a dime a dozen. The ones who win get inside their player and motivate.

Confidence is contagious. So is lack of confidence.

Dictionary is the only place that success comes before work. Hard work is the price we must pay for success. I think you can accomplish anything if you’re willing to pay the price.

Football is like life – it requires perseverance, self-denial, hard work, sacrifice, dedication and respect for authority.

Funny/cocky sports quote?

I am looking for a funny/cocky quote about winning. The quote should be able to apply to a variety of sports.

Ex: "theres no I in team but there is one in win"
-whoever said ‘its not whether you win or lose that counts’ probably lost
“If winning isn’t everything, why do they keep score?”

Any help is appreciated 🙂

You play to win the game…
We lost the game because the other team scored more points than we did…
We couldn’t make 2 with a pencil today…

Does anyone know of any good sports quotes about athletes or team work?

Such as "the name on the front of the jersey is more important then the one on the back".

It is amazing how much you can accomplish when it doesn’t matter who gets the credit.

There is no "I" in "TEAMWORK".

Teamwork: Simply stated, it is less me and more we.

TEAM = Together Everyone Achieves More

Teamwork is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results.

Andrew Carnegie
Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results.

The whole is greater than the sum of the parts.

Teamwork is working together — even when apart.

A job worth doing is worth doing together.

Coming together, sharing together, working together, succeeding together.

A successful team beats with one heart.
