I have been doing it since my sophomore year so it’s like a ritual for me but after that, I get dressed then head to our pre-game walkthrough then head to the pre-game meal once I’m done eating I take some time to isolate myself and visualize myself making big-time plays before it happens and finally before taking the field my teammates and I say our defensive creed before leaving the locker room and I give thanks to god one last time right before the game starts.
