All three of the programs mentioned are represented by an excellent group of young men and women and these coaches and players desperately need our support.

The time and effort that each and every member spends perfecting their craft, outside of their role as a collegiate student, often goes unnoticed. It is up to us as fans and followers of these student-athletes to come out and rally behind them and provide a support system for them.

As a former student-athlete and now coach, I know how beneficial it is and how much it means to see your colleagues and friends take time out of their day to come watch you compete.

They need and deserve your support, so let’s make a concerted effort as a college and fan base to give back to them in this way!
