Summing it up

It's been a great ride, but all good things must come to an end, and Landon's "Excellent Adventure" is over. He will head home tomorrow, June 8, 2007 at noon. He has learned and experienced so much. College baseball was great, but more so, the friends he met along the way. These are some of the best young men you could ever associate with. It has been a pleasure ! While the season did not turn out the way they had hoped, THEY always did their best and put it all on the line EVERY GAME. These words below describe their character. They will go far......

It is not the critic who counts; not the one who points out how the strong man stumbled or how the doer of great deeds might have done better.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by sweat and dust and blood;

who strives valiantly;

who errs and comes up short again and again;

who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause;

who if he wins knows the triumph of great achievement;

and who, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.
-Theodore Roosevelt
