Here at Chino Hills High School, there are many students that are involved in extracurricular activities.  For example, I play softball for both travel ball and I also play for the varsity high school team.  For me, school comes first.  This should be applied to every student-athlete.  Anyways, you should maintain a well-balanced schedule throughout the year if not, throughout the season of your sport.  I had the pleasure to interview one of Chino Hills High School student-athlete, Matthew Dearing.  Matthew has played football for Chino Hills High School for only one year but has said that he likes the experience of playing for the high school. Matthew is currently a sophomore on the JV team.  He plans on playing football throughout the rest of his high school years.  He said that his typical everyday schedule is to go to school, attend the practice from 3-6 pm and then go home and work on his homework. He said that, to him, it is very important to get a good night’s rest.  He also believes that procrastination could affect his day, so do not procrastinate. Student-athletes should take advantage of any free time that they may have during school hours and be productive such as, starting or finishing homework or classwork.  It is also very important to stay on top of your grades because it can either affect you positively or negatively in the future. Poor grades could affect your playing time on the field.  Colleges want to see well-rounded students who are not only maintaining a good GPA but is also involved in the school.  This is a breakthrough in how you can balance school and sports as a student-athlete.
