Goalies are a different breed!
The position is an entirely different game. If you think about it, many goalie skills overlap with other sports like basketball, football, rugby, baseball etc. In terms of the speed and agility needed, goalies are comparable to sports such as, tennis, badminton, racket ball.
The mindset is also different and is key to the success of any goalie.
The success is measured by how many saves, defending his/her team, not by how many goals and assists.
A truly unselfish, everything for the team, mentality.
"Being a goalkeeper means accepting and embracing that you’re different."
