Is being naturally talented at a sport enough to win?
Antonio is a gifted athlete, and when he starts playing football, he discovers he’s very good at it without even trying. But when he doesn’t bother to learn the plays and practice, his teammates get upset. When the team starts losing, the coach talks to Antonio. “Football takes work on and off the field,” he says.
Will Antonio put in the effort to practice hard and learn the plays, or will he rely on his natural talent carry him to a championship?
