Coming into this class, I was under the impression that most everyone (with the exception of at least one) was taking it to fulfill a requirement for the coaching minor. What the presentations have taught me, however, is that the interests of our classmates are almost as broad as the topics we covered throughout the semester. What we have learned in class can be applied to a range of careers- from coaches to athletic trainers to neck and back specialists.
One of the most interesting parts of the presentations for me was hearing how different individuals got to the point that they are in their career. I found it interesting to see how some people have been to the "big" leagues in their career, and for whatever reason, are now involved with collegiate sports. Being able to hear these individuals' stories (albeit second-hand) helped to remind me that in the end, success is subjective. Regardless of the career that you are doing or the level you are at, as long as you enjoy what you do and perform it wholeheartedly, you've been successful.
