    It is so refreshing to see some young men who not only are good athletes, but also realized the importance of academics. Andy thanks so much for highlighting these two young men
    for their achievements in the class room. This is some thing that is unfortunately forgotten with all the hype about recruiting and playing at the next level. For some schools the only numbers that matter are how many kids they can say they got recruited.
    The more important numbers are the grades that will take these young men and women
    much much further than just playing sports. We need more of these kind of stories and we need to continue to recognize these kind of achievements.
    Congrats to these young men and all the others who not only can do it on the field, but those who can do it in the class room as well.
