Sports Life Lesson 2: The Important Role of a Team Player

"Sometimes a player's greatest challenge is coming to grips with his role on the team." – Scottie Pippen

Every enterprise has leaders and role players. Both are vital to the ultimate success of the organization. But some are unwilling to put forward their best efforts if they're not the one taking the "game-winning shot." Athletes learn to play hard even when the play doesn't call for them to be the star.
