Hey, GHS students and staff…..Do you want to show your RedHawk Pride?  Purchase a RedHawks bumper sticker!  They will be available in the commons area during all lunches this Thursday and Friday.  The stickers are weather-proof and removable and are available in three designs.  The cost is just $5 for a large sticker and $2 for a small one.  Proceeds will benefit Key Club and The Ultimate Frisbee Club.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  Zak Keefer of the Indy Star wrote about NFL legend Peyton Manning and how he spent part of his off season every summer working on basic fundamentals with his brother Eli, under his former college quarterback coach.  Peyton was quoted as saying, “Don’t think you ever got it all figured out, because the little things matter. And if you ever think the little things don’t matter, and you can brush those aside, I promise you in whatever you are doing, your game’s going to slip.”  So the next time you spend a big part of your practice working on fundamentals, or your coach encourages you to do so in the off season, recognize the importance.  Manning did so for his entire career!
