This episode, 221, You Can "Manage" Your Way Through College, reflects on my college experience as a student-manager for the Southwest Missouri State Bears Men's Basketball team, now Missouri State. I reference episode 219 and go into more detail of the different, but perfect way I got to experience college athletics. I want to give high school student-athletes an alternative to playing their sport. Hopefully, through Recruit-Me, a college playing position is possible, but there could be a circumstance that directs you to another path. If you want to stay around your sport and get the great experience of being on a team, then a student-manager is a great possibility. Just like playing, a manager has to balance the team's schedule and his or her academics. A manager get many perks. Travel, food, gear, meeting people and inside access to the coaches and players are just a few.
