This statement was made at the local high school last night during a presentation for parents and student athletes on the subject of college recruiting practices and the strategies required for students to ensure they are visible to all colleges for consideration.
The statement opened for a detailed explanation of the advantages of teamwork, coaching, mentoring, peer support, goal setting and personal satisfaction from achieving/exceeding team standards that althetes get earlier in life than many students who don't participate in sporting activities.
Since there is no way to post a poll here in this forum (Too bad, it would make a great chart) I'll just ask the respondents to state whether they played sports in high school or not and whether or not they played sports in college.
I'm curious if it is in fact true that althetes (former athletes) do indeed, rule the world.
Thank you for participating.
