General football / Former Players - Would You Do It Again?
« on: January 13, 2017, 09:44:16 am »
An interesting topic was discussed at work yesterday.  A former manager of mine who played 1 year of D3 football and 4 years of D3 baseball asked me, if you had to do it all over again, would you play football in college again?

Background on me, I played at Saint John's from 1999 - 2002.  My instant response was 100% yes.  He said he would not.  He asked if I thought it took away from my studies.  Honestly, I don't think that it did, and I majored in chemistry, not some fluffy business program.  ;D  I truly think that, given a good program (i.e. coaches with priorities in the right place), intercollegiate athletics enhance one's educational experience.  Time management, prioritization, teamwork, sacrifice, etc--there is so much to be gained from athletics, and 15 years later, I have a successful career and family, so I would do it all over again in a heart beat!

Thoughts?
