Share your “Prove Yourself” moment here for a chance to win an iPad.

I proved myself once when I felt like my teammates were picking on a younger player. I worked with him after practice every day.
– Hayden Lawson, Glacier Peak (Snohomish, Wash.)

I prove myself at practice. Without the hard work and dedication spent without an audience I can't perform to my best ability.
– Brenna Leahy, Bay City Central (Bay City, Mich.)

The best way to prove yourself is to step up when your team needs you the most; you need to be a leader, not a follwer.
– Lindsey Stoy, Hamilton (Hamilton, Ind.)

I always push myself harder than the time before, and it works!!
– Antonio Armstrong, University Prep Academy (Detroit)

I proved myself in sports by being special and trying to be the best at everything. I hit a buzzer beater to win the game!
