Steven Cline left Kansas State University last spring with memories of two years as a starting defensive lineman for a major-college football team. He left with a diploma, credits toward a master's degree and a place on the 2007 Big 12 Conference...

251457's insight:

This article is about a Kansas State football player who left the program and the university with a diploma, but was very upset about his academic decisions while on the football team. Steven Cline took not-so-demanding courses in order to stay elligible for the team, but when he graduated, he did not have the proper education to become a veterinarian, his dream job. If I were to become a student athlete at the college level, I know I would have trouble being able to stay elligible for my sport while getting the education I need for my dream job of becoming a physical therapist. Even though it may be my favorite activity, I need to keep running my hobby and not have it be my center of attention in life or else I will probably regret it later in life when I have no education.

After reading this article, I learned a lot of alarming statistics. For example, I think the fact that seven of Stanford's 19 players is a red flag.

This article talks about how a woman's treatment in physical therapy changed her life for the better. The woman they are talking about in the article had a form of breast cancer and had to undergo several treatments of chemotherapy. After the cancer had gone away, she was left very weak and found it difficult to do everyday tasks which includes even the simplist one, walking. Through 5 months of physical therapy, the woman was able to walk greater distances and has helped prevent future problems.

Death threats for reseacher who demonstrated college athletes read below a third-grade level | The Raw Story

251457's insight:

The reason that I chose to "scoop" this article wasn't focused around the death threats that this researcher received, but rather the fact that some student athletes at UNC are unable to read at a third grade reading level. One of the possible underlying reasons to this may be due to the excess amount of time spent doing sports and not studying. This is the exact reason why part of me is hesitant to become a student athlete because I do not want to deal with the added stress of being a student-athlete and have my grades suffer because of it.

Most people go to physical therapy after suffering an injury such as a torn ACL.
251457's insight:

The reason why I like this article so much is because I can relate to what it is talking about. Typically after an injury, it takes a lot of both physical strength and mental strength to be able to get back out there and complete your training where you left off. You always worry about re-injuring yourself and it hold you back from doing something to the best of your known ability. The best way to fully heal someone coming off an injury is to heal them physically and mentally.
