"I just try and go out and work hard and do what I can. You can't really worry about what other people think. At the end of the day, if you can be satisfied with what you did and how hard you worked, then that's all that matters." - Jesse Foppert on Lookout Landing (Devin, 08/24/2005, 'Lookout Landing sits down with Jesse Foppert', Source )
