IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: An NFL line coach was reminiscing about a former player and how he was the most coachable athlete he’d ever encountered. Howard Mudd, formerly of the Indianapolis Colts, said, “He was the kind of player that was so coachable that you better not tell him the wrong thing because he’s gonna do exactly what you tell him.” No doubt that coaches respect this kind of athlete. Doing what a coach wants and expects out of you can go a long way in determining your playing time and your value to the team. Can your coach count on you? If you can answer yes, then you more than likely fall in the category of being coachable!
GHS is hosting the Elkhart County College Fair on Tuesday, October 4th from 6:30-8:00 p.m. in the cafeteria and Whiteman gym. The fair is open to students from any high school in Elkhart County.
