Boys Varsity Football · 2020 Varsity Football Message – Head Football Coach Ken Stills Sr.

Bishop Football Family,


I hope everyone is well. Please take a few seconds to make sure you are connected with your teammates on Hudl. This will allow us to communicate with each other if need be.


That being said, imagine that you had won the following *PRIZE* in a contest:

Each morning your bank would deposit $86,400 into your private account for your use.

This prize has rules, however.


The Set of Rules:

  1. Everything that you didn’t spend during each day would be taken away from you.
  2. You may not simply transfer money into some other account.
  3. You may only spend It.
  4. Each morning, upon your awaking, the bank opens your account with another $86,400 for that day.
  5. The bank can end the game, without warning, at any time. It can say, “Game Over!” and close the account and you will not receive a new one.

What would you personally do?

You would buy anything and everything you wanted, right? Not only for yourself, but for all the people you love and care for. Even for people, you don’t know because you couldn’t possibly spend it all on yourself, right?

You would try to spend every penny, and use it all, because you knew it would be replenished in the morning, right?

ACTUALLY, this ‘GAME’ is real.

Shocked ???


Each of us is already a winner of this *PRIZE*….we just can’t seem to see it.


  1. Each morning, upon waking, we receive 86,400 seconds as a gift of Life.
  2. And when we go to sleep at night, any remaining time is not credited to us.
  3. What we haven’t used up that day is forever lost.
  4. Yesterday is gone forever.
  5. Each morning the account is refilled, but the bank can dissolve your account at any time without warning…

So, what will YOU do with your 86,400 seconds?



Enjoy this downtime!
