High School Football Player Inspires America

One of the most inspiring news stories of 2014 was a motivational speech by Austin high school running back Apollos Hester, who was interviewed about his team after winning a game.

"You know that [all the hard work] is going to pay off, and if it doesn't pay off, you continue to give God the glory. Win or lose, [our team] realized that we were going to be okay," said Hester.

After the interview, the station's newscaster said, "If he doesn't make it as a football player, he should be an inspirational speaker. That was incredible."
