Amazing tales of courage and achievement…the true heart of college athletics.
Last week the National Association of Academic Advisors for Athletics (http://www.nfoura.org/) celebrated the Wilma Rudolph student-athlete achievement awards in Buffalo, NY. I can tell you personally there was not a dry eye in the crowd when these young people shared their stories.
So as the headlines are dominated by topics such as conference realignment and revenue sharing, please take a moment and read about these incredibly inspiring young women and men and their accomplishments. They represent all that is good with college athletics.
