IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: The University of Toledo is not known as a college football power, but they find themselves ranked in the Top 20 in the Amway Coaches Poll. There are plenty of reasons why, but the number one reason is their coach, Matt Campbell, and his great approach. You must admire his philosophy. Here, in a few words, is what Campbell talked about in a recent article in USA Today: “As much as this is about winning and losing games, we’re still teachers. With everything these guys are going through, it’s hard. We were all 18 or 19 once, but we can’t lose the fundamentals of how to do things the right way from yes sir, no sir, please and thank you’ to how do I carry myself the right way to do the right thing? It’s not just about football.” Let the simple things in life be the foundation you build your life upon!
