IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (9-9-19)
“Promoting education based athletics in Indiana”
“When the going gets tough, the tough get going.” I know, it sounds a little corny, but I had a former coach who said that to me a thousand times through my high school years.
In looking back, it did me a lot more good than I realized. It has stuck with me, it has influenced me in a variety of ways, and when my back is up against the wall it still inspires me to keep going and do my best.
It’s rewarding when we are fortunate enough to have teachers, coaches, and administrators who have a lasting effect on us. Who in your school has had that influence on you?
We play sports for a variety of reasons, but in the end it’s the growth we make individually that really counts. Seek out those individuals who challenge you to work harder and smarter to push you to reach your full potential. Every day is a new day for that goal. Learn from the past and look toward your future goals!
