IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (11-18-13)

"Promoting education-based athletics in Indiana."

The Philadelphia Eagles official twitter account quoted Coach Kelly about his quarterback Nick Foles, saying that he may not be fleet of foot, but he's fleet of mind.

What kind of athlete do you consider yourself to be?  Most high school athletes lack in speed, strength, or quickness.  Are you one of those?  How do you make up for those deficiencies? 

There's always a place for the athlete who can think on their feet, remember the plays, is a good teammate, and can react to adversity in a positive way.

The next time you begin to question your athletic ability, remember that coaches everywhere like athletes who have mental strength and sound fundamentals!
