Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (5-26-14) 

   "Presented by the NFHS" 

  

        One of major league baseball's bright young stars is Mike Trout of the Los Angeles Angels.  He offered the following advice without knowing so with a recent article written in Sports Illustrated by Tom Verducci.  

  

         "The biggest thing at the plate is if I tell myself to hit a home run, I get out 100% of the time.  All my home runs come from just telling myself, base hit up the middle."  

  

          Athletes that try doing too much get themselves in trouble.  Regardless of your sport, keep this in mind as you train this summer.  Don't  swing for the fences.  Improve your skills a day at a time!
