ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WIVB) - I am at that age where it seems like every other day someone else is getting married. It is wonderful that so many people I care about have found someone to spend their life with but as a weekend sports anchor it is not very conducive to my schedule.
This week I spoke to Bills long snapper, Garrison Sanborn. Apparently I am not the only with scheduling conflicts. Garrison was one of the best long snappers in the country when he graduated from FSU in 2008 but yet he failed to find a home in the NFL upon graduation. He worked in finance for a about a year, while training every day after work. He knew he had the ability to be in the NFL and simply needed the right opportunity.
Finally, the phone rang. Garrison would get his chance. Buffalo invited Garrison to try out for the team. Ironically the date of the tryout was a date he heard many times that year. It was the day of his sister’s wedding. He had a tough choice to make. With his sister’s blessing, Garrison missed the wedding and took a shot at his dream.
He made the team and four years later still owns a spot on the Bills roster. As someone who responds “No” on RSVP cards far more times that I’d like, I understand that dreams don’t come true without sacrifice. Even more importantly, I have learned relationships don’t last unless the people you love believe in you as much as you believe in yourself.
