There’s a quote that Moises Haynes read this year that stuck with the Valencia senior running back.
“If you want to succeed, you have to learn how to fail.”
Failure is something Haynes knew all too well. Just take last season’s CIF-SS Division 2 playoff semifinal loss to San Clemente where a halftime lead slowly evaporated.
“I just remember crying and seeing the tears on our senior’s faces,” Haynes recalled. “We knew we should’ve won.”
