CCHS alum follows his path to victory.
Many high school athletes dream of making their love of sports their career later in life, be it as a professional athlete, team manager, physical therapist, photographer or sportscaster. The road to becoming successful in the professional sports scene is difficult and that’s no secret, as out of eight million high school level student athletes nationwide, only four-hundred-eighty thousand make it to the collegiate level, and even less to a pro status according to the NCAA. But what happens to the majority of athletes that don’t make the cut?
Well, for any student that wants to make what they love their career, the phrase “Have a backup plan” is all too familiar, and as offers from universities across the U.S. roll in for the extremely talented and hard working athletes, many of the players in high school sports scene go unnoticed or are given significantly less attention. This leads to doubtful students searching for other career paths, some straying from that path completely and some pushing through to make their mark on the industry they love.
