It was another outstanding semester for University of Montana student-athletes. For the 2015 spring semester, UM Athletic Director Kent Haslam said a new all-time high record has been set in terms of scholarship by these student-athletes.
There have recently been two outspoken moral and religious athletes in the news lately. I would just like to say that it is about time we had some good athlete role models for our youth. Was anyone else sick of the football players making millions of dollars and getting thrown in jail for having their girlfriends killed, dog fighting and drugs? Or baseball players getting their records revoked for juicing? And basketball players cheating on their wives with young women who cry rape? Why is it that if over 90 percent of Americans believe in God (http://www.gallup.com/poll/147887/americans-continue-believe-god.aspx), does it seem like 100 percent of our professional athletes don’t? You may know at least one, if not both of the good role models I’m talking about.
