Being A Student Athlete

The definition a student-athlete is a participant in an organized competitive sport
sponsored by the educational institution in which he or she is enrolled.

When I think about a student-athlete I think of a disciplined human being. Making the decision to be a student-athlete you have to remember that you are a full-time student as well as full-time athlete. Chances are if you make it to collegiate athletics, you have already put in countless hours, blood, sweat, tears and many missed important events and don’t forget school work.

You have to change your mindset to be different from the average person. Being a student-athlete you move, think and dream at a higher level. You get to meet many other athletes that are talented, gifted, driven, dedicated, and so much more. Most of the time you built lifelong relationships. You get to create bonds and friendships with people that all start because you share a passion for the same thing as them: being a student-athlete.

To this day I still am in contact with some of the athletes I competed with. Being a student-athlete means that young kids look up to you in an admirable way and you have the influence to empower them and keep them reaching for their dreams.

Only athletes understand what other athletes go through and because of that it creates unification between sports.

When we look back at your time being an athlete you won’t remember most how much
you hated practices (although they will forever be in your mind), yet you will remember the joy,
happiness, and pride that was spent doing what you love with people that you love. It means that
when you graduate you walk across that stage knowing you gave all you could in the classroom
and you represented your school playing your sport, and that is a dedication only some will come
to know.

    I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if
    you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest
    twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time
    and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy

    Great blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little
    lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so
    many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions?

    An outstanding share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a
    friend who was conducting a little research on this.

    And he in fact bought me breakfast due to the fact that I discovered it for him…
    lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thanks for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanks for spending the time to discuss this matter here
    on your internet site.
