IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (9-29-14)

"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"

Are you a goal-oriented person?  As a student-athlete, do you set reasonable goals for yourself in the classroom and in your sport of choice?  Are you one that gives up easily, or do you fight until the end to see your goals finished?

The goal of every minor league baseball player is to make it to the big leagues.  Guilder Rodriguez played for thirteen years in the minors.  Last week he was called up to the major leagues for the very first time with the Texas Rangers.  His dreams finally came true.

In high school you only have four years to reach your goals.  Some days will be better than others.  Some subjects in school will be easier than others.  Some sports will work out for you, and some may not.

The next time you question yourself about the difficulty of achieving your goals, think about the trials and tribulations that this baseball player faced for 13 years!
