Those are the dudes who give their bodies up for the cause on high-speed collision plays like kickoffs and punt returns.
But his commitment to do the best with what he had elevated him to being named captain of that unit.
And his commitment to a brainstorm he had while trying to be the best defined the rest of his life.
Here is the sentence that formed his future:
“I think sometimes entrepreneurs can get caught up with theorizing, hypothesizing, business planning — at some point, put the freaking pen down and go do something.”
Plank’s brainchild was UnderArmour, the sweat-wicking line of apparel that has blossomed into a $3billion-a-year operation.

Plank is living proof that if you want change, you must take action.
And he looks for bright people with initiative who heed his advice.
