What has your sport taught you about teamwork?

There is a middle school student who wishers they were you right now…what advice would you give him/her about high school athletics?
The jump in skill level and athleticism from middle school to high school is very big, so it’s important to make sure you stay practicing and getting in the gym whenever you can to make sure you don’t fall behind your competition
