A Day In The Life Of A BMHS Student Athlete

By Ian Lynch ’17, Staff Writer

A student Athlete faces many challenging factors in their typical day. Athletes must know how to prioritize. Athletes need to make sure you have time for just about everything, but school must come first. Student athletes have long days and may have trouble with being focused in school due to lack of sleep. Student athletes have to stay up later than the average student who do not play sports to get their homework done after practice. McNamara’s baseball star Nick Washington ’17 says, “You are gonna have long days feeling tired but you have to overcome the diversity and get the work done.”

Student athletes have to constantly think about the future rather than the present. and in the day-to-day cycle they have to give 100% in everything they do. McNamara’s basketball star Charles Kelly says, “Every day is a new day with a new mindset of being great. You have to tell yourself that it is mind over matter giving 120% in the classroom and on the court.” Student athletes may face troubled times in the classroom from giving their all in their sport. You may come across people falling asleep, but that is merely because of the lack of rest they got from the day before.
