"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"

 So many times during high school sporting events there's a time in the game where one or two plays or possessions will determine the outcome of the game. Preparation, good calls by the coaches, and execution by the players usually turns out to be the difference maker.

As an athlete, how do you prepare yourself for those challenging moments and game changing plays?

Being under control is much more important than trying to make the big play. A first down at a time, a bucket at a time, or hitting singles instead of swinging for the fences actually keeps the pressure on your opponent.

Big plays usually come from the breakdown of an opponent.  Next time the game is on the line make sure you take care of your assignment. By doing so, it could turn out to be the biggest play of the day!
