High School Football Player’s Rollicking and Inspiring Speech Just May Change Your Life

Subscribe to TheFW on

Postgame speeches by athletes are usually humdrum affairs where nothing really interesting is said. Well, no one told this teen.

Meet Apollos Hester, football player for the East View (Texas) Patriots. In addition to a memorable name, Hester gave an equally memorable interview following his team’s 42-21 victory over Vandegrift last weekend.

Just watch this and try not to be pumped up. It’s not possible. Apollos may only be in high school, but he sounds like he’s got the wisdom of someone four times his age, while maintaining the joy all children have. He should graduate and immediately start on the motivational speaker circuit.

It’s the most memorable postgame speech we’ve seen since Richard Sherman nearly went off the deep end last winter when his Seahawks clinched a berth in the Super Bowl.
