“Promoting education based athletics in Indiana”

How important is “character” when it comes to being a successful high school athlete? Does it play an important role in your eyes? How would others view your “character”? Do you have parents, teachers and coaches that stress the importance of having a good character?

This past week a commentator for the NFL quoted Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins as saying “who you are as a man (woman) will reflect who you are as a football player.”

Sometimes athletes get hung up on how big, fast, quick, and strong they are, forgetting that the mind plays just as important of a role in being successful as does ability. When the going gets tough, your true character is exhibited. Make sure it is one that you can be proud of!
