NCAA: Unionizing takes focus off the future

Unionizing players in NCAA athletics is one more step to take education out of collegiate athletics.

The reason student-athletes go to college is to be student-athletes. The purpose of college is an education, to build a knowledge basis for a career to support the student for the rest of their lives.

These particular students already have their educations fully paid for, an opportunity many have to fight tooth and nail to get. The careers a higher education can offer a pathway to have a much higher chance of supporting the students for their entire lives.

Student-athletes should focus on their educations, so their futures can be secure.
