Seriously….play 2 games this year and just outside of Top 10???.. What the heck….tired of emphasis on importance of rankings/sports over character/academics, etc. Give me a Full Ride because of my athletic skills???….kids bust their butt in the classroom, but get overlooked at times because of the $ athletics brings to college…bunch of B.S.

Please realize that ALL the kids have school work, the only difference is kids participating in athletics are also putting in 20 plus hours a week, working on their sport and then busting their butts in the classroom. Juggling the schedules, handling the deadlines and multi-tasking prepares kids for the real world. One doesn’t have to be a Division 1 athlete to learn the skills of working hard, dedication, and participating closely with teammates to achieve a common goal. Same can be said for participating in band, dance and other extra curricular events. Besides these life skills, many athletes, band members etc… volunteer their time to worthy causes. They are earning their recognition. Kudos to those who work hard and go the extra mile!!!

First anonymous must not have been able to make the team and is jealous.

Way to go Mohawks, on the rise!
