"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"

Most high school student-athletes play sports for the fun of the game and the fellowship with teammates and coaches. Some hope to continue to compete at the college level, and very few have the opportunity to move on after college and play in the pros.

A statistic I recently heard during a college football game shows how hard it is to make it to the professional level in football. Only 9 out of every 10,000 high school football players get drafted by an NFL team. Less than that actually have an opportunity of making it on a roster.

Regardless of what high school sport you play, making it to a college team is a challenge and then making it to the pros is highly unlikely. That's why playing high school sports for the pleasure of participating, competing and having fun should be your top priority. Anything after high school participation should be considered a great achievement!

"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"

Is there ever a good time for an athlete to reinvent himself/herself? It usually happens when you are unhappy with your long term performance or see very little opportunity for improvement in doing things the same way.

Most athletes become somewhat complacent sometime during their career (or season) and reinventing yourself could rejuvenate your outlook and efforts if things aren't going like you wish.

My suggestion would be to make very few changes, if any, if you are in season. The proper time for a major overhaul would be in the off-season when you will have plenty of time to fine tune your changes before you put them to use.

You will never reach your full potential unless you put the time and effort into becoming your best, regardless of the path you decide to take!
