IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (10-9-17)
“Promoting education based athletics in Indiana”
Student-athletes can shine in a variety of ways. It’s not always about touchdowns, points scored, or a fast time. In fact, it’s much more than that. How do you make a difference in your community?
Houston Texans rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson did just that by contributing his first professional paycheck to the support staff of his team. They had lost all of their belongings during the recent hurricane. So yes, he gave up something he had looked forward to for a lifetime, his first pro paycheck, to help those that help him every day.
For a high school student to make a difference or show an act of kindness, it might be a “good morning” to another student, or a “thank you” to a custodian, a show of respect to those in charge, or a smile when things are going tough. Are your actions showing that you are a caring and giving person?
There’s nothing more rewarding than making someone else happy. Make sure you try to do so every day in your actions and words!
