"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"

So many times during high school sporting events there's a time in the game where one or two plays or possessions will determine the outcome of the game. Preparation, good calls by the coaches, and execution by the players usually turns out to be the difference maker.

As an athlete, how do you prepare yourself for those challenging moments and game changing plays?

Being under control is much more important than trying to make the big play. A first down at a time, a bucket at a time, or hitting singles instead of swinging for the fences actually keeps the pressure on your opponent.

Big plays usually come from the breakdown of an opponent.  Next time the game is on the line make sure you take care of your assignment. By doing so, it could turn out to be the biggest play of the day!

"Promoting education based athletics in Indiana"

Tiger Woods won the PGA Tour Championship final event and participated in the Ryder Cup for the USA this past weekend.  He stated after his last victory "I couldn't have done this without the help of everyone around me."  Tiger had not won a tour event since 2013.

Think of the people that play a big influence in your life and your athletics. Your parents, family members, teachers and administrators, coaches and teammates, and friends.  While you may not look daily at how influential they really are, in the end you will realize how important a great support group can help lead you to success.

Don't take these people for granted.  Be thankful they are a part of your life.  And don't be afraid to show your gratitude along the way by showing sincere appreciation for their support and help.  No one can go it alone, not even Tiger Woods!
