At Canisus, I was a student-athlete. A typical day would include early morning practice and classes scheduled throughout the day. After my last class, I would attend afternoon my weight lifting/conditioning group. Once I was done I would make time to shower and ready my backpack for homework time in the library. Being a student athlete, I learned the importance of effective time management and setting goals to be accomplished. The hardest part of this was obtaining some down time but overall I was being given the opportunity to go to school and play the sport I loved.
