IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (12-9-19)
"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"
If you were to make a game winning shot, hit a game winning home run, catch a winning touchdown pass, or set a school record In an individual sport, how would you react? Are you the type of player that pats yourself on the back when you have a good performance?
In this day and age of self promoting athletes, we see much more celebration and exhuberation on average plays and performances. There is no doubt that emotions can play a big role in the outcome of a game, but my question to you is how long should you celebrate a good play before you move on to the next one? Hopefully, not very long.
The confident student-athlete shows respect for himself/herself, his/her team, and their school by not "showboating" and trying to upstage the opponent, regardless of the situation. A good rule to follow is to act like you have been there before!
