Seeing that student athletes are already given so much, I figured it would be interesting to see what they are actually grateful for and what they appreciate the most. Most of the student athletes I interviewed and spoke with stated that they are most thankful for the people who help them and make their difficult, stressful lives easier. Specifically, I interviewed a D1 Hockey Player on the mens team here. He made it evident that one person makes his life much easier than it has to be. Ashley, his academic counselor has made his life very easy, allowing for him to get good grades and keeps his grades high enough to compete at the collegiate level. Similarly, I am very thankful for my own academic counselor, Stephanie. Stephanie has assisted me in applying to grad schools and keeping my grades in the necessary range to apply. Often, we, as student athletes, forget to be thankful for all that we are given, but knowing that someone is working just as hard as we are on the field is very rewarding and makes us humble.
