Perfect Performance Director of Football, Alameen Murphy at Stanford University.
Being a student-athlete is a two part equation that asks you to excel both on the field and in the classroom. This comes with it’s fair share of challenges.
Oftentimes we see people prioritize the “athlete” aspect over the student. This is not a successful strategy in the short/long-term. It is important to create a good balance between school and athletics to be able to maximize your potential as a student-athlete. As some students are moving back to in-class teaching this is the perfect time to utilize the following tips.
(1) you will be less distracted being in the front of the class.
(2) it is easier for your teacher to spot your good class habits.
Oftentimes we want to sit with our friends or in the back of the classroom but I challenge you all to sit in the front and watch your attentiveness and grades improve.
Excelling in the classroom is just as important as performing well on the field. Coaches are looking for someone who can add value to their team and handle the academic challenges that come with being a college athlete.
