IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: A wise coach once said that it’s just as tough to handle success as it is to handle failure. One current star, professional golfer Jordan Spieth, seems to understand the importance of humility in the midst of his success. When asked about the importance of humility in a recent Golf Digest article, Spieth replied by saying, “My speaking about humility is very difficult, because that wouldn’t be humility.” A student-athlete who understands this lets other people do the talking about who’s good and who’s not. Tooting your own horn can cause a problem bigger than a major traffic jam!
