IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (12-16-13)

"Promoting education-based athletics in Indiana."

Paul Patterson, retired basketball coach at Taylor University, was recently named the Silver Medal winner by the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame.

A quote by him applies to all athletes at every level.  "What I've learned is hard work is the separator.  Our faith grows in the hard things we do.  We all want to quit.  We all want to cheat when the coach isn't watching.  But the good ones don't do that."

Remember, in athletics and in life in general, you are only cheating yourself if you aren't giving your best in everything you do!
