"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"

Learning from past experiences is invaluable when it comes to growth and improvement in your sports.

According to Sports Illustrated, one of this year's top NFL players, quarterback Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs, learned a valuable lesson during his freshman season at Texas Tech.

His college coach told the story of his first college game when he fumbled, then threw an interception--on the same play, after entering the game when the starter was injured. He admitted later that he was unprepared because of his poor practice habits. From that day forward he made preparation for football the centerpiece of his life.

More times than not, it's what you learn from a negative experience or tough loss that makes you determined to improve and become better!
