You might have found the title of this episode shocking.  Yes, sports can destroy your life.  It's up to you.

Jon Fugler's guest on this episode, Shannon Carlisle, is a former D1 scholarship athlete who discovered she had tunnel vision.  Her sports career was her life.  When her college career was over, it took her years to adapt to life outside sports.

Today, she helps other athletes develop the right perspective on athletic competition so their personal identity isn't tied to their sports career.  She heads up Path to Purpose.

When we pursue an athletic scholarship, our sports life can dominate us, and it can get worse once we get into college.  As a result, the sport you love can actually destroy you.

Listen to Shannon as she share some wisdom that will help athletes while they are still in high school.
