Keeping your head up a must in sports

February 28, 2013

We’ve all seen it happen. If you played a sport yourself, you may have done it at one time or another yourself.
It’s when a player makes a bonehead play that turns the ball over or thinks he was fouled on a shot and instead of immediately getting back on defense, he (or she) will stand there for a moment and pout before jogging back down the court.
I see it all the time on the college level. A player will be knocked down and a foul should have been called.
But instead of letting his coach work the referees, the player will just lay on the court for a extra couple of seconds while the play goes on without him.

For the full column, see Thursday's Malvern Daily Record.
