"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"

If you are an underclassman (younger athlete) and trying to move up to the varsity, it can sometimes become a difficult adjustment. How's the best way to impress the coaches and your teammates in getting that job done?

There is no simple answer.  You must first of all be talented enough. But sometimes talent alone isn't enough. Proving yourself can be a difficult process and taking the place of an upperclassman can sometimes destroy team chemistry.

LaVall Jordan, basketball coach at Butler University described to the Indy Star how Duke transfer and first year player Jordan Tucker is trying to work his way into the Bulldogs rotation.

"He's trying to fit in before he stands out, which we all appreciate." Sometimes talent alone won't get you in the lineup. Your abilities, style of play and attitude must fit in as well. So if you are one of those players trying to move up the ranks, do all of those little things that show you are deserving of your inclusion!

"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"

If you don't dream about it, nothing ever happens. My nephew started his first full time job a month ago and is already planning (dreaming) on how to make his money work for him. In sports it is no different, if you don't have a dream or plan, nothing good will likely happen. 

What are your dreams? How do you plan to attain them? Is it something you think about daily, or just every now and then?

Successful people (and athletes) have a dream. They incorporate that dream into their every day activities and schedule. A dream is nothing more than a goal that you are trying to achieve.

Take time to envision where you are and where you want to be 6 months or a year from now. Put a plan in action that gives you the opportunity of achieving your dreams. Falling short doesn't mean failure, but having no plan or dream to achieve your goals will leave you falling short of your own potential!
