An Old Chris Beard Quote is Going Viral On Twitter
This footage below is originally from December 2nd of 2019 after back to back losses to Iowa and Creighton. The Red Raiders were 5-2 coming off a National Championship appearance but missing veteran leaders like Jarrett Culver, Matt Mooney, Tariq Owens, and Norense Odiase just to name a few.
Chris Beard was asked how the young team that featured two freshmen in the starting lineup would respond to adversity in the next game.
"We stay the course. The process. Get up make sure you win Today." Chris Beard responded to the question about responding to adversity. If you notice, Beard's answer doesn't start with the next game. It starts with the next day. Having a winning attitude during class. Taking notes and sitting in the first few rows.
Eating meals like a champion. Making choices like a champion.
Trusting the process daily. That's what makes you great. The daily grind.
It doesn't just happen on game day.
The sentiment from Beard had more than 18 thousand likes on twitter and had been viewed more than two million times. There were also more than four thousand comments talking about how great the quote is. Not only for the student-athletes but people saying the video reflects in their own lives. The building of habits and winning every day making up broader successes.
The Red Raiders' 2020-21 season starts with Northwestern State coming to Lubbock on November 25th, 2020 at 6:00 pm on ESPN+.
