Scholar Athletes

I've always found that during the football season -- when my sons spend most days either at practice or at games -- they are more focused on their homework.  They don't worry, they don't procrastinate -- they just come home and get it done.  Other football parents have seen similar scenarios with their kids.

And now it is official:  according to Shape, "A recent study from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign showed that competitive athletes are better at juggling different mental tasks and have quicker reaction times boht on and off the field than those who don't play sports."
