​The Thunder Athlete is "Passionate"in their action to become the best teammate they can be to assist their team in becoming as successful as possible!

Passion defined:  When you put more energy into something than is required to do it. It is more than just enthusiasm or excitement, passion is ambition that is materialized into action to put as much heart, mind, body and soul into something as possible!

Is that you?
