IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  Super Bowl 51 will feature the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons this Sunday.  Will you watch the game?  The human interest stories on the coaches, players and their families are a good reason to tune in.  Of all the big televised sporting events, the Super Bowl commentary provides more insight into the personal life, successes and failures of these talented athletes (both starters and reserves) than any other.  The event should be outstanding, but the stories told on how these players got here and the challenges they faced are the stories you want to hear.  By watching, you will find a story or comment that will inspire you to become a better student-athlete than you are today!
