“It’s better to be prepared for an opportunity that might not come than have an opportunity come and not be prepared.” – Air Force third-team running back Bryan Driskell.
Bryan Driskell says he lives by those words learned from his parents, Stancey and Ernestine Driskell. They especially sunk in watching his mother beat cancer.
“The whole time she was there for us,” Driskell said. “She always did the best she could, and she always had a smile. That’s a big reason I always smile, too. She instilled in me to be relentless no matter the circumstances. You never know when your time will come. If you quit, you might miss your time.
