Sports always came naturally to me, but academics were another story. I entered my freshman year at Western Michigan University as an average student and a walk-on on the track and field team.
To my surprise, that first year in college things went extremely well. So well that I earned a 3.6 GPA. I also went on to develop incredible relationships and obtain internships with top companies like Kraft Foods and Walt Disney World. That success left me determined to figure out how I did it and how other student-athletes can experience success as well.
The good news – I figured out the formula for student-athlete success and in my book I share everything I learned.
In Student Athlete 101, you’ll find all the tools you need to get the most out of your college experience from day one on campus.
While I didn’t become a professional athlete, I did go on to earn an athletic scholarship and become an All Conference athlete. More importantly, my success in the classroom, with internships and building relationships, led to the successful career I enjoy today. I even got a Masters degree from an Ivy League school.
