Inspiring Educators Who Inspire Future Leaders

Why Student Athletes Continue To Fail

Ohio State quarterback, Cardale Jones, shocked the world when he made the decision to stay in school after winning a national championship. While many may focus only on his decision not to go to the pros, I hope his decision to put the “student before the athlete” sparks a national debate about student athletes and the role of education to prepare these players for life after college (even if it means they never play professional sports).

Whether Cardale Jones becomes a pro ball player or a telephone operator, I hope his decision sparks a conversation that helps us better prepare student athletes to be well-rounded people and not just million dollar athletes. tlb
