Happy Friday, ladies and gentlemen!
As young athletes we’re always told to play through the whistle. Coaches look at us crazy (occasionally lose their minds) when, during practice, we just stop in the middle of a play. Usually, when we stop in the middle of a play it’s because we’re not fully engaged in the practice. We’re tired mentally or physically, we’re not focused, or we don’t think it’s a big deal, or some combination thereof. None of those three is excusable. It’s imperative, for the benefit of ourselves, our teammates, and our collective success that we always go hard. Injuries also occur when some people are going full speed, and through the whistle, and others are not. <a title=”LAS Insider” href=”/shop/las-insider/” target=”_blank”><img alt=”Words of Wisdom: Premium Content by Chazz Woodson” src=”http://laxallstars.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/CHAZZ_WOODSON_PREMIUM_POST.jpg” width=”600″ height=”338″ /></a>
