IHSAA Student Athlete Tip of the Week (1-26-15)
“Promoting education based athletics in Indiana”
Super Bowl XLIX takes place this weekend and the media coverage will provide you with many interesting background stories on the athletes participating.
Let me suggest that you look for stories about those not named Brady, Wilson, Lynch, or Gronkowski. You will hear plenty about them. Instead, search for stories on offensive and defensive lineman, defensive backs, and special teams players. They will highlight things like challenges the players have overcome and how they give back in their communities, among other interesting viewpoints.
There will be a story that will inspire you and challenge you in ways you never thought possible. You will see beyond the incredible athletic ability and you will find that there is so much more to each athlete beyond the playing field. It's amazing what you can learn by listening to the most watched athletic event of the year!
