A confident student-athlete does not need to chest pound and showboat following an outstanding play during a game. Does a good student brag and jump up and down when getting 100% on an exam?
Tom Brady, three-time Super Bowl winner and quarterback of the New England Patriots, said that his coach, Bill Belichick, had the following advice for him: When you win, say very little. When you lose, say even less.
This is just another way of saying, don't be surprised or get overly excited following a good play or good game. This should be something you expect as a result of your constant preparation.
