“Winning is not a sometime thing; it’s an all the time thing. You don’t win once in a while, you don’t do things right once in a while; you have to do them right all the time. Today is not about the past and it’s not about the future. It’s about right now. And you have got to want this feeling to last forever. You tell everyone or anyone that has ever doubted, thought they did not measure up or wanted to quit, you tell them to look up, get up and don’t ever give up!” Indeed words of wisdom; from one of the greatest people that has played a big part in the JKUAT sparrows team.
A few months ago we witnessed the transformation of the JKUAT sparrows into a hungry team that has proven to be committed and more than once it has displayed amazing performances on several accounts pinning down their biggest rivals the Mighty Nyati.
Sparrows coach has played a big part on the sparrows team. He has given the young men a chance to be better at what they do, a chance to prove and believe in themselves and that chance was by playing good FOOTBALL, note not Soccer!
The Saturday of November 7th 2015 witnessed the JKUAT Sparrows claim the only victory which left no regret to those that had been gained over ignorance at the Nyayo National stadium. The battle took its normal curve as soon as the whistle was blown with the JKUAT sparrows commanding the game with successive runs from their running backs Mark Omondi Okello and Brian Nakitare.
Mighty Nyati were finally punished with a single touchdown when Mark Omondi dashed 8 yards past the Nyati safeties to put the JKUAT Sparrows 6-0 ahead. The rest of the game saw the Mighty Nyati gain possession with a series of runs and throws from their quaterback Tony Okello but JKUAT Sparrows once again produced a classical defensive combat to deny their opponents even a single touchdown.
A habit that was witnessed even by the JKUAT coach himself, saying, ‘Our default has always been defense because we always do it better.’ “Today we played well, big games and a series of yards gained, we were just unlucky to fail to score when we had a chance. Generally i am impressed with my team and this is the first time am not bitter with the loss. We will get them some day, and they will pay heavily” said Tony Nyati’s quarterback.
The games were made possible by, thank to #NEWKISS100FM team that made it happen in collaboration with #FreshChewingGum and all the winning teams that produced amazing performances.
Remember, Hardwork Beats Talent when Talent Stops Working, but when Talent Works Harder, it’s Over.
