IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (9-6-21)
"Promoting Educated Based Athletics in Indiana"
You may have recently watched the new NFL Hall of Fame Inductees acceptance speeches in Canton, OH. While Peyton Manning may have been the biggest draw, I was inspired by the words of Calvin Johnson.
Johnson was a great wide receiver for the Detroit Lions and said, during his acceptance speech, that his best advice came from his former wide receivers coach.
"Stay ready so you don't have to get ready."
If you stop and think about this simple quote, it can be useful to you in all walks of life, but especially as a student-athlete.
The way to stay ready is to be prepared for anything a teacher or coach may throw your way. Hopefully you are up for that challenge as another school year gets underway!
