Seniors

Every year I interview a group of senior athletes on Coaches’ Corner. These 17 and 18-year olds amaze me more every year. When I first started doing radio, it was hard to get them to say more than “yes” or “no”. One poor athlete did not even speak, but just nodded his head. I had to take a commercial break and tell him we were on radio and they could not see him shaking his head. Today, they not only answer your questions but seem to relish the chance to talk. This, however, is not the amazing the part. It is what these young athletes have accomplished already in their short lives and how poised and confident they are. Most of them are honor students as well as good athletes. Some have even been Lily Scholars or Merit Scholars. Their poise and confidence is refreshing because they are not flaunting anything, but just being themselves. These young athletes are our future, and I am confident they will handle it–and handle it well! Think back to when you were that age and ask yourself–Would I be the one with confidence or the one just shaking my head? Even if we do not understand their texting or whatever, we can be sure they seem to know quite well what they are doing and what they want to do in the future. Like I said earlier, it is refreshing!
