IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: This past week a Texas high school and two of its football players were involved in an ugly exchange with a football referee. In short, the ref was blindsided and was intentionally run over and attacked by the two players. As a student-athlete, you know that emotions run high when you are competing and trying to win. However, there is never a time to justify bad behavior. Regardless of the circumstance, never lose your cool and composure. Part of competing fairly means respecting all of those involved: the officials, coaches, teammates, opponents and the fans. It’s a fact that only one team can win, but everyone loses when bad behavior and bad decision making becomes the headlines!
MEETINGS DURING SRT:
The Human Rights/Stop Human Trafficking Club will meet today during the 2nd session of SRT in room 2350. The group’s goal this year is to have students interested in stopping modern slavery to meet, educate themselves and engage in activities to increase local awareness.
