IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: Whether you are a starter for your team or a bench player (substitute), then it’s your responsibility to stay focused and ready when you are not in the game. The Colts Andrew Luck did not play the last two games, but was still engaged on the sidelines, even getting water for his teammates. He knew he wasn’t playing, but did all that he could to contribute to his team. Are you a positive influence on your team when you aren’t playing? Are you doing everything off the field (court) to help your team to a victory? Successful teams see enthusiasm from everyone!
