Student Athletes

When Colt Ryan graduates in May, he will have completed his journey through Evansville in four years. Yes, I said four year–not five or six as it takes for many athletes to complete this journey. Many never do complete it! They are not student athletes, just athletes on their way to a pro career. Colt, however, now holds the scoring record at Evansville for career points and will graduate with a very high GPA. I think his major is accounting. Right now his thoughts are still on furthering his playing career, but that is still to be played out. For certain, he will not be another jock with no means of supporting himself when the body cannot play any more. He was twice the academic winner for the whole Missouri Valley Conference as well as an athletic all-conference performer. He is another in a long line of Batesville graduates who have been able to accomplish this kind of feat. They are products of good homes, a good education, and a drive to excel. Colt, like most of the Batesville students, has done it in a highly academic institution of learning as well. They did not choose to go to a prep program for the pros (like a school to our south has evidently become), stay one year, go to school just long enough to stay eligible, and then bolt to the pros. Good job Colt!
