Here is a great song by Kenny Chesney called the boys of fall. Having been an athlete in college I get chills listening to these coaches talk. You can never recapture that feeling of running on the field and playing a game.
When I played your teammates were your brothers. I always say that it was like I had 20 new brothers we did everything together. When I see my college teammates today, 25 years later, it is like we have never missed a beat. You fall into the same jokes, the same rhythms of the friendship you had all those years ago.
