IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (12-17-12)
"Promoting education-based athletics in Indiana."
Bobby Knight, the Hall of Fame former basketball coach of the Indiana Hoosiers, has been quoted many times during his coaching and broadcasting days. In the day, his teams were known for their preparation for an upcoming opponent.
In talking about preparation, he once said, "The will to succeed is important, but what's more important is the will to prepare."
Take it to heart. Whether it's in the classroom or on the field of play, the student-athlete of today needs to learn the importance of preparation. It starts much earlier than any competition.
When you learn to prepare, success is more likely to follow!
