IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: This past week an NFL general manager was asked to respond to the poor behavior of his star player, wide receiver Odell Beckham, after a tough playoff loss. Jerry Reese was quoted as saying, “He’s a smart guy but sometimes he doesn’t do smart things.” Players at all levels have a responsibility of acting properly before, during and after games. In today’s society, athletes must be aware that almost every negative incident can be tweeted about or seen on video. Nothing, and especially negative behavior, goes unnoticed. Everyone slips up from time to time. However, doing and saying destructive things should never enter the equation. Make sure your actions and attitude represent you, your school and your team in a first class way!
