Brett has always been the best at everything. He's a star on his basketball team and a champion spelling bee competitor. Then, in a close game, Brett misses a lay-up. Then, at a friend's birthday party he finds himself freezing with fear while climbing a wall at the local Earth Treks. What's going on here? Is he losing it? Can he trust himself? His confidence is flying out the window. In typical Fred Bowen style, this sport centered story takes a look at a problem faced by plenty of athletes, young and old. As always, there Fred shares some real life stories about big names who faced down the same enemy. In this case they were star basketball players who made some big mistakes and came back to triumph. Terrific messages for our kids in a time when showboating and celebrity seem to be what it's all about.
