As a young student-athlete, I remember these days so well, because they shape me into the person that I became years after my athletic career was over.
The Athlete’s Playbook is a rich platform of resources specially designed for our young student-athletes. Who better to reach back and show the way to young student-athletes, than former student-athletes and former professional athletes. After all, they’ve been there and done that, and, young people, being young people, still tend to put a lot of faith and trust into their sports heroes.
Check out the Athlete’s Playbook, and come on board to support our next generation of outstanding student-athletes!
Jack Thompson and I have been friends and colleagues for a very long time. We were both student-athletes together back on the campus of Washington State University. He and football and me in basketball and we struck up a friendship even back then with common values and a shared vision of how student-athletes can be the best they can be.
He went on to have a wonderful NFL career and an even better post-athletic career in the world of business, and still being very involved with our alma mater, Washington State University.
Please check out this wonderful short video clip in which Jack touts the virtues of being a student-athlete and taking it seriously.
