WHY GO TO COLLEGE?

A REASON FOR YOUR EDUCATION
Education is essential for economic development and eradicating poverty. It allows people to be more productive, to play a greater role in economic life, and to earn a better living. In 2010 college graduates earning a 4-year bachelors degree on average earn $25,000 more annually than workers with only high school diplomas. Over a forty-year career, that adds up to about 1 million dollars. Along with its economic benefits: education also provides individuals with the tools and knowledge they need to understand and participate in today’s world. It helps to sustain the human values that contribute to individual and collective well-being. It is the basis for lifelong learning. It inspires confidence and provides the skills needed to participate in public debate. It makes people more self-reliant and aware of opportunities and rights. Armed with this knowledge there are still those student-athletes who would not attend college if it were not for the opportunity to continue their athletic careers, while other student-athletes would not be attending college if it were not for the scholarships and financial aid awarded to them for competing in amateur athletics. Whatever the reason; combining education and amateur athletics results in getting student-athletes into college, giving them an increased potential for becoming more productive members of society.
THE PROCESS

Student-athletes seeking to advance their playing and academic careers to the collegiate level have many requirements to meet both athletically and academically. The recruiting process is very competitive, complicated and intimidating. Education, encouragement and guidance for the student-athlete and his family become critical during this process. An individualized, well-packaged recruiting plan also becomes a crucial tool in being successfully recruited by the student-athletes preferred institutions. The creation of these packages and highlight tapes is not the role of the high school football Coach or the high school counselor. Their job is to provide statistics, game film and instruction in the sport of football and to help mold these young men’s character. The earlier this process is introduced the better prepared the student-athlete will be.
