IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (10-16-17)
“Promoting education based athletics in Indiana”
In a recent article in Sports Illustrated, on a story about a high school football program in the 1970’s in upstate New York, the former players on this team spoke about what those times meant to them.
One of those players was quoted as saying that “Football was the sport that taught me to be a ‘we’ person more than an ‘I’ person. That’s been helpful in building teams professionally. I wish I’d stayed with the game in college. I quit too early and missed out on having those friendships like I had in high school.”
When things get tough, don’t even consider quitting or giving up on yourself. Regardless of your sport, the friendships you develop and hard work you put in will be much more valuable than the wins, losses and present day stress!
