On December 16th, four college athletes who had just arrived home for their Christmas break spent a few hours talking with students at Lady’s Island Middle School about their experiences as football players for their respective colleges.

The message shared by these young men is that academics come before sports and that without good grades, you will not be able to get into college, no matter how good of an athlete you are.

The advice they gave on being successful in your sport is to be coachable, to be dedicated and to always be willing to do more than is asked of you. LIMS is thankful to these young men for taking the time to inspire future student athletes.
