IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (4-19-21)
“Promoting Education Based Athletics in Indiana”
Put your phone away. Have you ever received that advice? Ever tried putting your phone away for a period of time?
Former Dallas Cowboy QB Tony Romo gave his friend Will Zalatoris that advice before he competed last weekend in his first Master’s golf tournament. Romo’s advice: “I said turn off your phone on Friday night, and you can apologize to the people you didn’t respond to later…”.
It worked for the young golfer who finished second on the biggest stage of his young PGA career.
The calls, texts and social media that go along with phones can be overwhelming, time consuming and distracting to your goals. How do you get focused when you need to prepare for a test or a big game/match?
Have you ever turned off your phone for a period of time? Wonder what might happen? You might be like Zalatoris and see great results!
