The Apache Junction High School boys varsity soccer team on Nov. 19 met with Tim McAfee, CEO of Failure LLC.
Mr. McAfee is a former professional basketball player who created the Failure brand as a method to tear down the negative perception that often accompanies the word "fail."
He talked to the team and explained that failure could and should be used as an avenue to achieve excellence --- not just excellence on the soccer field, but also in the classroom and in the community.
