In life, people will experience different things that will have an influence on who they are as well as who they will become. These experiences are in direct correlation to future success. Some believe that most of these experiences are outside of one 's own control, such as where he was born, where he goes to school or even a financial situation. While this makes sense, there is one thing that is within one 's control that will greatly increase the likelihood of one 's achievements. Playing sports in high school has a positive impact on future success.
Student athletes are said to have better memory than the average student. Research done by Harvard Medical School shows that the part of the brain that controls thinking and memory, also known as the prefrontal cortex and medial temporal cortex, are greater in volume if you exercise. “Even more exciting is the finding that engaging in a program of regular
Also these programs might help the students feel belonging and value in their college. For just as Shaun Harper said “Even at places that are impressively diverse, students still feel very much on fringes”. I feel that if colleges offer these programs the kids should have the choice of if they want to take part in it or not.

I would be very beneficial if in high schools started having programs for African Americans to look at their future and help prepare them for college.

Out of high school, many students receive scholarships to follow their passion of playing sports; these college athletes take on the responsibility of being a leader to their universities and their team. Student athletes should view playing sports as an addition to completing their studies, not a replacement. Many believe student athletes should solely focus on bettering their “game” in order to make it to the professional sports league. While this is important, student athletes should also be expected to go above and beyond with their actions in and out of the classroom.

315 also stated by Tower, 2008, p. 9). Applying the Hierarchical Model of Intrinsic and and Extrinsic Motivation to athletes and academics, this shows that the sports culture has a tremendous influence over athletes, and since their academic success is highly related to their eligibility to play sports in turn influences athletes to be motivated in school and therefore leads to better grades. A study done by Synder (1990) and further researched upon by other psychologist say that “Participation in sport may lead to experiences, attitudes, self-perceptions, and treatment that may enhance the academic role for these reasons: (1) if one is participating in sports there may be an increased interest in the school, including the academic activities; (2) to maintain athletic eligibility, the athlete is motivated to perform at a higher academic level than average; (3) athletic success may lead to more heightened sense of worth that spills over into student-athlete’s academic achievement; (4) coaches, teachers, and parents take personal interest in athletes, including their classroom performance; (5) athletic participation that may lead to membership in elite peer groups and an orientation toward the student-athlete’s academic success; and

Kevin Kniffin, a man who teaches leadership and management in sports at Cornell University says that his research and previous studies show that people who contribute in a sports team during their high school career are more likely to get better jobs with better pay. Although, there are people who still get good jobs without having to join a sports team studies show that student athletes appear to be more favored.

Enforcing the “C rule” could also cause more scholarships for Webb City Students. If students are getting good grades and raising their grade point average then colleges would be more willing to give out scholarships.
