The Emphasis on School Sports In Today's High School we are afforded the opportunity to not only expand or minds but or bodies as well. We are free to join a wide variety of groups out side our required class studies. Weather it be math, seince, band, language, or a variety of sports we are free to choose. However there are those who are determined to take those choices a way from us. These poor miss guided soles believe their way is the only way. More often then not when these type of people talk of taking away certain choices they tend to target sports, considering them to be barbaric and uneducational. When it is in fact they who are turning back the wheels of intellectual enlightenment with the narrow-minded view that we should all be alike. In order for us athletes we are the only one that are hounded by the coaches singled out in front of our teachers told that we need to get our grades we are constantly holding grades that is higher than most of the other students in our schools. There is a program that makes very strict rules for us and that there is no gray line and that we all must meet the standards of a 2.0 or better no more than one "F" or we can not participate in that certain sport we can not ditch a class or get suspended for a certain amount of days. There is no if and or butts. To this program it holds one of the highest standards of them all and that is all of as in every member of every sport including sprit squad and that is Colorado High School Athletic Association . This is the panel that makes the rules and enforces them upon anyone and everyone with no exceptions. Also athletes are proven over and over again that they are better at school than their counter parts at school that are not in school and that is the athletes have a higher GPA and miss three less days at school in the year. Out of the about 1500 plus students about 500 of them are athletes and they all do the same things at school they have no special exception to the school rules and they can not get away with anything that a normal student would.
