IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (1-8-18)
“Promoting education based athletics in Indiana”
Indiana University basketball recruit Robert Phinisee, a senior guard at McCutheon H.S. In Lafayette, is having an outstanding senior season. He still describes his game as a work in progress, and according to the Indy Star he continues to work hard and stay focused.
“I’m still improving every day and trying to get better every day. I’m listening to my coach. We’re trying to get better as a team. I’m just trying to work hard in practice and improve my game. When I go, the team goes.”
Regardless of the sport, successful athletes and successful teams can’t rest on their last game or latest statistics. How is the best way to remain on top?
Phinisee has the right answer. Always strive to improve, listen to those in charge, out work your opponent, and stay focused. Is your team working on that winning formula?
