The Gospel According to Mark Few

by Greg Asimakoupoulos

Posted: April 1, 2017

Imagining what Gonzaga's coach wants to say to his players…

We've zigged and zagged all season long
to prove we really do belong.
And through March Madness we have fought
to reach the Final Four.

Our guys are few and far between
and mark my words "We'll reach our dream
if we relax and play OUR game
with faith that we will win.

Take time to center down and pray.
Thank God we have the right to play.
And thank Him for a school that has
its roots in what is good.

Like David with his five smooth stones,
our team of five has clearly shown
Goliath has good cause to fear.
It is Gonzaga's time!"

Go Zags!
