“Football is Like Life-it requires
Perseverance, Self Denial, Hard work, Sacrifice, Dedication and Respect for
Authority”. Football is the World’s
most popular sport. It can be easily played with little to no equipment: socks
are balls, rocks are goalposts and a few friends can form a team. Such a sport
is an ideal fit to our Country where resources are scarce, but there is no
shortage of talent, energy and interest. By keeping these quotes and ideas, A
