In high school sports, one of the keys to success on the field or court is team leadership. What players on the team are leaders. With that said, it is not always the most vocal player, the one that wants to stand out. In some cases that is a detriment of good leadership. Many players are non vocal, quiet leaders that lead by example with their work ethic and attitude at practice and on the field or court.
