“Football is not an individual sport. It’s not tennis, it’s not golf,” Beban said. “It’s a team game and you need teammates to perform and to perform well. For those three years, we all performed very well and I know on behalf of all the teammates who are there or not there, we’re all going to appreciate that everybody remembers us playing the game well after so many years have passed.”
