    BASKETBALL TIP
    “FAT” Defense = Fake And Threaten

    FAT can be anything that indicates to the player with the ball that you are about to do something that you are not really about to do.

    Defensive players usually play too passively. But FAT should help you to remember that a good defender is not content just to run back on defense alongside his man.

    Get back, face the ball, and be prepared to fake and threaten the ball to discourage a pass or a penetration.


    LEADERSHIP LESSON
    “Courage is an inner resolution to go forward despite obstacles; Cowardice is submissive surrender to circumstances. Courage breeds creativity; Cowardice represses fear and is mastered by it.

    Cowardice asks the question, is it safe? Expediency asks the question, is it politic? Vanity asks the question, is it popular? But conscience asks the question, is it right?

    And there comes a time when we must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because it is right.”

    – Martin Luther King, Jr.


    LIFE PRINCIPLE
    “When you’re feeling scared, genuine passion will lift you up and give you the excitement you need to propel you through your fear. Fear is a powerful enemy, but passion is an even stronger friend.”

    – Susan Cain
