Stress has been an increasing issue regarding not only college students, but also student-athletes. Imagine the workload of any normal college student. Then imagine on top of academics, playing a sport which occupies the remaining available time within your day and weekend. This is the life of a student-athlete. Many student-athletes are able to handle the schedule and pressure that one faces in the collegiate environment, but some cannot.
Should college athletes be paid? I think they should. I found three main reason why other people and myself think that college athletes deserve pay. One, you can just pay the sports that produce the most revenue. Two, these student athletes put in lots of work and even sometimes have to miss class to go to the sports event. They have to put in work on and off the field of court. Three, the coaches and everybody else but the players are paid. These kids take time from their school work and personal things to get things done for their sports team and don’t get anything in return. “Nick Saban will make $11 million in the year of 2018 coaching the football team of Alabama University.” (www.espn.com/college-sports/story/_/id/6778847/college-athletes-deserve-paid.)
Now, the book Anthem has many traits that teens can relate too, one way is to give you a quote from the book. In the book Anthem there is a repeated quote that has a huge impact on the teens that read the story this quote is. “We are one in all and all in one. There are no men, but only the great WE” Rand pg 19. What this quote is stating is that everybody in this society is the same and isn’t allowed to be different. Teens can greatly relate to this because school is a place where they are all expected to be in the same boat, with all the same grades, and the all the same things we
In this community lately, there has been discussion lately on sports possibly being removed from the high schools. Although, they get the most recognition that does not mean that just because one little thing it gets removed and completely forgotten about. In fact, so many people do high school sports in the text “Are High School Sports Good For Kids” it explicitly states “Here in Michigan almost 300,000 young people take part in high school sports every year.” This scene particularly shows that many youth athletes participate in high school sports in only one state alone. On the bright side, if you are getting that many participants and students your high school will eventually get noticed for the talents of these young scholars. In continuation,
High school isn’t necessarily the best four years of everyone’s life. In a short time the audience was shown the complicated endeavors many teenagers either overcome or become wrapped up in. Although Brian is extremely successful in his academics he struggles deep beneath his skin with extensive pressure and societal acceptance. Brian Johnson is one example of someone who was almost defeated by the difficult
Intercollegiate sports discourage education for the athletes, which is often not beneficial to the athletes themselves. Most college athletes have to devote 40-60 hours each week to practice, plus recovering, “working out, and attending team meetings” (“College Football is Ruining Education” S. Almond, newsrepublic.com). This greatly limits the amount of time that they have to study
Every year 300,000 students are participating in sports (Gould 1). The School District has been funding the athletics program, which has been benefiting many of the students’ lives for several years. The discontinuation of high school sports will cause many students to loose the health, social and educational benefits provided by participating in athletics. The School District should continue to fund sports because they benefit students.
College athletes like most employees work countless hours a week, miss many school days, and put themselves at risk for injury on a daily basis, but unlike regular employees they do not receive paychecks. NCAA players are compensated for their contribution to their universities through scholarships. It is true that most scholarships cover tuition, and room and board but many fail to realize the many other expenses a college athlete may face. These players are working for a multi billion dollar industry which is exploiting them for their talents and they should be paid fairly for their contribution.
According to " The Case Against High-School Sports" (2013), sports could create some study, health, and time management problems for schools and students. In this post, Amanda Ripley initially shows the benefits when involving in the high-school sports: exercise, sportsmanship lessons, some positive personalities, more fun and staying away from vices. She also writes some tales to inform readers that in the US, students are interested and enjoy in sports more than other peers in other countries. However, she claims that the high-school sports have negative effects on schools and students. Next, she gave some schools ' examples to show the problems when schools and students spent too much time and money in high-school sports. Moreover, she reports
From the Friday night lights to the last second goal, school sports are a major part of the high school journey. In fact, according to "Are High School Sports Good For Kids?" by Daniel Gould, Ph.D., over five million students from the United States participate in a school sport. High school sports are a great way for student-athletes to stay healthy, make new friends, and be a part of a team atmosphere. In addition, school sports keep kids off of the streets and lower the athlete's chance of committing a crime.
High school can be a dreadful place for many, and for some it is an amazing experience. The hallways are filled with people of all sorts of backgrounds and numerous social circles. Every individual has his or her rank on the totem pole of popularity. John Hughes’ movie The Breakfast Club exemplifies these diversities and social circles as five teenagers form a new bond one Saturday in detention.
I embody the Disney Channel cinematic masterpiece High School Musical. Regardless of the cliché connotations associated with it, I couldn’t imagine starring in any other movie. Even though my best friend and I can play the roles of Troy and Gabriella better than the actors themselves, my real reason for starring in the series stems from the impact it had on my childhood.
Schools have sports for the seasons fall,winter, and spring but not summer because school is out. At New Century International Middle School, they have boys soccer, girls track, and girls volleyball for the fall. When winter comes and it gets cold outside the sports move indoors, there is girls and boys basketball,and wrestling. Then when the temperature gets hot again the sports go outside again with girls soccer,boys track,and girls play softball and the boys play baseball. All these sports are for the school and they go against other schools in there divison to see who the best is. People don 't have to get good grades to tryout but then your school starts a rule "Most have a C,or Average, in all subjects to tryout".
Do you remember the days of when High school Musical was the topic of every conversation? Adi Alsaid, the author of Never, Always, Sometimes has created a fictional book about two high school students who plan to never be cliché high school kids. In this journal, I will be describing how one character finds their identity, love, and truth.
