College athletes seem like they have the perfect life. Fans only see the dunked baskets, glorious catches, scored goals and monstrous kills, but they don't truly see the person and work behind the athlete. That is what Born To Fly (BTF) is. BTF is a movement to tell the stories, journeys, adversities and triumphs of not only our student-athletes, but coaches, trainers, faculty and staff as well.
BTF enables our fans to see what our student-athletes are actually Born To Do. Not everyone is here to make it to the league or to play overseas. Some chose to come to Southern Miss because it provided them the proper education and resources to achieve what they are really Born To do.
BTF gives fans behind-the-scenes access to videos and photos to the realities of being a student-athletes, which include early morning workouts, film sessions, study hall, practices and the late night homework assignments.
Born To Fly also allows fans to see that our student-athletes continue to learn and grow but are willing to share those lessons with others that may relate or struggle with the same or similar issues. Because of Southern Miss these student-athletes are able to Fly.
Everyone is born to do something.
