In high school my teammates and I used to call ourselves Animal Champion Warrior Legends. I'm still not sure how to exactly define that phrase. At the time we thought it was a fitting description for a focused team of undersized kids who trained year-round at all hours of the day to win a state championship.
As I've gotten older, and learned more about the world and some of the extraordinary people in it, that phrase pops into my head when no other combination of words will do. For me, it's begun to define winners in life, rather than just those on the field. Daniel Rodriguez is a decorated war hero with more Bronze Stars than Rivals' stars who's also trying to live a dream and play football. He is an ACWL.
"Ideally Virginia Tech would be the dream, so. I was born and raised a Virginia native, Hokie fan my whole life, so, that'd be the school I want to play for." — Daniel Rodriguez
"I think it's likely that I give an undersized, over the age Army guy a chance." — Frank Beamer
I think every Hokie, myself included, hopes this happens.
