IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: Last week was the NFL draft. As always, there were some surprises as to where the college stars landed and which teams would select them. But regardless, there is always competition. The draft assures nothing. New Denver Broncos quarterback Mark Sanchez said it best. “If you are confident in your ability, you have no problem helping a guy.” If you are an upperclassmen, take this suggestion to heart. Always be of help to the young players on your team and encourage them constantly. Your leadership and attitude will truly affect their growth as a player and student-athlete!
