My first two years playing college soccer, our team could not win.
We had more talent and worked harder than any other team in the league, but lacked the confidence that every team needs to be successful. Half-times usually saw us on the losing side. Coach would huddle us up and point to the other team high-fiving and celebrating their lead. His halftime speech would go like, “look at those guys, they’re pumped to be up two-nothing on you guys, they’re high-fiving each other. Its High Five City over there.” Coach used High Five City as a taunting phrase of encouragement describing what we didn’t have, but we wanted to earn. HIGH FIVE CITY was the chant that ushered our team from silent bus rides home to unruly Saturday night celebrations. After a championship win against the unbeaten league favorites, HIGH FIVE CITY was established.
High Five City is the victory path, the glory land, the place you only get to through hard work, hustle and dedication.
