empire fc in jackson ms
We went 3-1 at Empire FC. The squad put on 4 dominant performances but one of our professionals made a slight mistake and paid for it with an armlock. Most people will never understand what goes into this sport and how painfully low the valleys can be. Our coaches and athletes pour our hearts and souls into each other and the pain of defeat is felt across the team. We also realize how lucky we are to do what we do and are forever grateful for the opportunity to express ourselves and grow in the fire.
