Sometimes lost in the constant barrage of bad news is the recognition of positive achievement. One such case involves the Cal Poly football team. At the recent end-of-the-season banquet, the 18 seniors were honored. Remarkably, all 18 football players are graduating with a bachelor’s degree from Cal Poly.
Truly, these young men were students first and athletes second. Athletic Director Don Oberhelman, and head coach Tim Walsh and his entire staff deserve kudos for emphasizing academics in their program. And each of those graduating seniors deserve our respect for their hard work and dedication that resulted in a successful academic and athletic career at Cal Poly.
