How many times have you turned off a game or event at halftime - only to find out later that your team rallied and ended up winning the game?
Each year there are games that *seem* decided at halftime, only to have a completely different second half. Most recently, the 2017 Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots, who trailed the Atlanta Falcons 28-3 in the NFL's championship game, only to rally and pull off a historic 34-28 victory to hoist the Lombardi Trophy as the game's best.
Contrary to what many fans believe, the game isn't over at halftime when the teams head into the locker room. Many times, it's just beginning.

There’s some kid out there that’s watching all these kids sign to “big time” colleges. He’ll sign to a D3, and be in the HOF one day. — Arian Foster (@ArianFoster) February 6, 2013
Every year, in every sport, there are marquee names that grab the attention of fans everywhere. No matter if its deserved attention or simply hype because of their last name, select players dominate recruiting lists, all-star ballots, and newspaper articles. This is especially so in football, where groups such as Scout.com, Rivals.com, ESPN, and more rank players by “stars,” and expect those same players to live by their “all-knowing” rankings.
But each year, these rankings fail to factor in two very important attributes: heart and those who choose to compete every day.
