Michael Keller ,Dallas Cowboys and Mental Toughness

"Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better."– Samuel Beckett
 Why did a 6’4” 225 pounds athletic football and basketball player, who ran fast, at Catholic Central high school in Grand Rapids, Michigan, question why the University of Michigan granted him an athletic football scholarship? To his amazement, he wondered “Why were they recruiting me, a guy from Grand Rapids, when they had all these high school all- Americans to choose from?” He added “I never felt good enough.”   And stated “I never thought that I’d see or get on the playing field, but I hoped, that I would at least; make the traveling squad before I graduated.”
Michael Keller
How did this insecure, doubting kid from a small high school in Grand Rapids, who started out on maybe the six string on the  U of M freshman football team, who didn’t think he was good enough to play at this level of football, become a three-year starter 1968-1971; won  second team Big Ten honors in 1971; become one of the 40 football players selected to play in the college  all stars versus Dallas Cowboys in 1971; and become drafted in the third round, the 64 th pick  selected  overall , by America’s team, the one and only Dallas Cowboys?
