Alumni in College

We're committed to providing students with the right resources and the support to continue their athletic careers in college. 

Being part of a team has taught me responsibility and accountability. Everyone else on the team is counting on you to fulfill your role. If one person isn’t doing their job, the whole team will suffer because of it. Sports have also taught me how to face and overcome adversity. A lot of times in sports, not everything is going your way, but you must continue to play and figure out how to succeed."
