How to Tell a "Winner" from a "Loser"
- When a winner makes a mistake, he says "my fault"; when a loser makes a mistake, he throws the blame on someone else.
- A winner credits his "good luck" for winning on being fundamentally prepared; a loser blames his "bad luck" for losing on bad breaks even though he is not fundamentally prepared.
- A winner works harder than a loser and always finds time to do what is expected of him; a loser never finds the time and when he does, he works on the wrong things.
- A winner makes commitments and sets goals with his heart and sets out to accomplish them; a loser makes "promises" with his mouth and never sincerely means to keep them.
- A winner shows he's sorry by making up for mistakes; a loser says "I'm sorry" but does the same thing next time.
- A winner thinks, "I'm good, but not as good as I should or could be." A loser thinks, "I'm not as bad as some of the others."
- A winner would rather be admired for his ability than liked, although he would prefer both; a loser would rather be liked than admired because he knows he hasn't worked hard enough to be admired.
- A winner hates to lose; a loser could care less although he may put up a good front.
- A winner is fundamentally sound in all aspects of the game; a loser is not!
- A winner knows that strength, agility and quickness are the keys to success in athletics and works hard to attain those things; a loser may know, but never attains.
- A winner takes constructive criticism from the coach, realizing that it will help him and the team; a loser pouts and thinks he's being picked on.
A winner thinks of the team first and never wants to let the team down; a loser thinks of himself first and the team last.

Cumberland Gap High School sits on 67 scenic acres in western Claiborne County, Tennessee in the foothills of the culturally-rich Appalachian Mountains, located about a mile from beautiful, scenic Highway 63. Enrollment for the 2012-2013 school year averages 600 students with 45 faculty, 28 support staff, a principal, and assistant principal.
Our school opened its doors to students in 2003, merging Powell Valley and Forge Ridge High Schools. Both of these schools have a proud heritage of educating students in the area. Graduates represent every profession, and many have gained prominence on the state and national levels.
Powell Valley High School’s service spans 10 decades beginning in 1914, with the last major renovation of adding the middle vocational school in 1980.
Forge Ridge School began in 1928, with its last renovation project of adding the cafeteria and office in 1988.
The area surrounding Cumberland Gap High School is rich with state and national historical landmarks and points of interest including Lincoln Memorial University, Debusk College of Osteopathic Medicine, the Historic Town of Cumberland Gap, Cudjo Caverns, The Iron Furnace, Cumberland Gap National Historical Park, Abraham Lincoln Library and Museum, Civil War sites , Historic Martin's Station, the Cumberland Gap Tunnel, and many more points of interest too numerous to mention.
