Emotions play a big part in any student-athlete's successes and failures. Have you had trouble controlling your emotions during a practice, game, meet, or match?
In a recent article in USA Today by Marlen Garcia, Indiana University basketball coach Tom Crean made the following comment about his top recruit and star player Cody Zeller. "He's got a great way about him. He plays with emotion, but not emotionally. I don't think that anything speeds him up in his mind."
There's a time in every athletic contest when emotions can be helpful or detrimental. Learning to control your emotions and body language will make you a better athlete and will be helpful to your team. Remember, no one controls your emotions but you!
