Focus, work ethic help Bexley’s Schiff stand out

Stefan Schiff wants to be in harmony in mind and body when he competes for the Bexley boys tennis team.

The junior returns after playing first singles last spring, which was his first varsity experience after losing his freshman season to the COVID-19 pandemic. Schiff is now ready to take the next step with the Lions.

“The most difficult thing about tennis is getting out of those mental blocks,” he said. “As a young kid, you start to hit those ages when you’re a little more self-aware, and you realize that everyone is watching you and the decisions you make. You have to focus on yourself and your game.

“You have to block out the perceptions of others. You have to take your own journey and work to improve your mind and body day by day. That’s what I try to do when I get on the court. “
