Students set their whole focus on making it to the top league possible but, what if they don’t make it. Only a small percentage (2.0%) actually make it to the big leagues according to norwichcsd.com. This is why students playing sports should have a fall back plan supported by their personal education so that they can make it into college and get a good paying job. Most high level colleges want at least a 3.0 to get accepted and if the athletes were to be on honor roll their chances of going to college would increase tremendously. However, many students are different in their ability to learn in school which is understandable. This should not be an excuse for why students can’t be on honor roll but, can still play a sport because playing a sport is a privilege. Since it is a privilege, students who get on honor roll should be allowed to play. This would increase the amount of people on honor roll overall making the student-athlete better off for the future. A student’s foundation is education and it should be the main priority, that is why people send their kids to school after all.
