A hundred words about academic eligibility

I’ve never played sports for a school so I’m not even qualified to talk about this, but I am anyway.
I’ve been around high school sports for a while now. I had a bunch of classes with student-athletes in high school and college.
Since I wasn’t able to play sports, it bothers me to see student-athletes throw their opportunity away.
When I read the story about eight South Carolina freshman athletes who may not qualify academically, I was saddened.
I realize it takes effort to be an athlete.
It takes more to be a student-athlete.
Put priority on the classroom.
