"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"

There are so many factors that lead to teams being successful, but one of the most important is chemistry. The Indiana Pacers of the NBA, like all teams, knows this as well. One of the best players off the bench, Cory Joseph, was quoted in the Indy Star with his version of chemistry.

Chemistry is a big factor in winning games. Everybody in the league can play.  Everybody is talented.  The right chemistry and the right mindset and team goals that everybody trusts and builds into say a lot. As long as we have the same goals (as a team) we could do big things."

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.

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!
