My I-Search question is: Could I be a Walk-on to WKU's football Team?

The content of this paper will include informations on football, Walking-on to college sports team, what you need to do, and successful athletes that are in the pros now that were walk-ons in college.

Mitchell Vail's insight:

Audience: Athletes who plan to be a walk-on to a college sports team.

 

Purpose: To inform future college walk-on athletes on how to walk-on to a college sports team and what the expectations are if they make it and that it won't be easy when it comes to trying out and making it on the college sports team that they are trying out for.

 

Reflection: So far I have found out that I can be a walk-on to WKU's football team. But, try-outs will not be easy, in fact even harder because the coaches want to weed out the athletes that aren't willing to do the hardwork or give the effort needed to make it on the team.

 

Presentation: I plan to present this topic to my class by using power point and some examples of what walk-ons have to go through and some that made it to pro levels using youtube videos as part of my examples.
