IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (2-13-17)
“Promoting education based athletics in Indiana”
Super Bowl 51 was Tom Brady’s fifth title. His leadership and grit helped lead his team back from a 28-3 deficit. This game will no doubt seal Brady’s legacy as the best quarterback to ever play the game.
However, Brady still realizes he is part of the team and not the team. When asked why there has never been any friction between him and his coach, Brady answers quite simply: “He’s the coach, I’m the player.” That simple philosophy is a quality that all athletes should take to heart.
Do you listen to your coach? Do you let outside influences affect your attitude towards your coach? If your coach asks you to do something, do you abide? The most successful teams are those that believe in their coach and the system he (she) runs!
