IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (12-7-2020)
“Promoting Education Based Athletics in Indiana”
After a recent game, NFL quarterback Cam Newton was asked about his individual statistics and lack of production, following his team’s win. Cam responded by saying he would never apologize for winning and stated he does not play the game for any type of individual accolades. He said he plays the game to win.
Hopefully you have the same type of mindset when you are playing for your high school team. Are you putting winning ahead of your own individual performance and statistics? Do you encourage your teammates?
As Cam Newton stated, you play on a team to win. You may have games with a great individual performance and others where your teammates are the key to victory. When your mindset is on the team, you will find yourself pulling more for your teammates and less focused on your own individual statistics!
