Road to the Roses

You have to compete and you’re gonna have to beat somebody and earn that spot and take that job from someone else


Stanford Football : «Road to the Roses». Et interessant innblikk i amerikansk collegefotball og David Shaw’s verden. Shaw ble valgt til Pac-12 Coach of the Year i 2011 og 2012.

  • «Everything in life that’s worth a damn is hard.»
