Tips for graduates

By Justin Hubbard

 

Spoiler alert: This is not a sports column. I’m sorry to disappoint those who have come to expect expert analysis in this section of our paper.

I do not go off-script in my columns too often but I would like to do it this week. Is that OK with y’all? Sweet.

As you can tell by the opening of this piece, I can be a lighthearted person. Life is way too short to go about it with a permanently serious attitude. There is no fun in that, anyway.

This is the final installment of a three-part series, which will discuss student-athletes who competed in soccer and baseball.
