IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: There are many factors that determine how you can become a successful student-athlete. Have you given any thought on how and why certain student-athletes make a positive impact on their school? I believe the formula can be summed up in three simple words: Grades over Games. The foundation of being successful starts in the classroom. If you dig in academically, it actually makes your involvement in sports an easy transition. The same principles and work habits apply in both. Sports are short-lived but serve a great purpose. Academics last you a lifetime. While big games are easy to fret over, it’s the daily classroom work that prepares you for the future. Grades over Games is the true formula for future success!
