‘Hold The Rope’
By North Oconee High School Football Team
Oconee County Schools K-12
"What does "holding the rope" mean? Imagine that you are dangling from the edge of a cliff with a drop of over twenty thousand feet. A rope is the only thing keeping you tethered to safety. Who would you choose to hold that rope? Who do you know that has the guts and strength to pull you to safety? Who will go through the pain of rope burn on their hands, bleeding, to save you? Resilience and Teamwork is about every person on the team overcoming their own obstacles...and holding the rope for themselves and their teammates."
