The student-athlete experience is a tripod of academics, athletics and life skills activities, i.e. community service. As much as we want to tout student-athletes as students first and athletes second, it can’t be denied that everything student-athletes do in college relates back to athletics and performance on the field.
Everything is connected.
So during this football season, we though it would be fun to keep a tab on how the 100+ schools using Helper Helper volunteer app this fall during the NCAA Team Works™ Competition perform on the gridiron. It is our belief that schools who are pushing their student athletes to excel in the classroom and off the field will also excel athletically.
How did Helper Helper schools do?
Pretty darn good.
#2TCU had a big win over Minnesota
South Carolina took down wanna be rival North Carolina
Florida International blocked a field goal to win 15–14
Wake Forest thumped Elon 41–3
Ball State put 48 on VMI
UConn shows they aren’t just a basketball school
Western Kentucky took down the SEC with a big win over Vandy
Fresno State had a cake walk over Abilene Christian
The only two losses were Michigan and Colorado.
Congrats to Team Helper Helper!
