Being a student-athlete anywhere is hard, but Rabun Gap makes it a lot easier. The teachers and staff make it so much easier to be a student and an athlete because they all care. They always check up to see if we’re doing well in all of our classes and if we fall behind they always find a way to get help.

What Rabun Gap did for me was invaluable because, 在那个年龄, I had little to no experience with organized sports or weightlifting or anything like that. 然而, after arriving on the Rabun Gap campus and being enrolled in classes, one of the first classes I took was the weightlifting class with Coach Mac and later Coach Honeycutt. It gave me an appreciation of the importance of quality resources and coaching in higher levels of basketball.
I would not be where I am today without Rabun Gap and the crucial part it played in developing my leadership skills, 对于的态度, 足球技巧, 和自信.
