Little has been written about the problems student-athletes encounter in attempting to balance their sports with the grueling demand for academic success in classrooms. As a resource guide for professionals, Champions in the Classroom offers a model and historical perspective for understanding the challenges faced by "student-athletes" while providing solutions and guidance to put the needed emphasis on "student." Penny Turrentine also provides a "Playbook," written in jargon that athletes understand, which offers students the methods for not only testing themselves but to easily understand their strengths and weaknesses. This book strives to conquer academic problems that student-athletes face and shows how to win in the classroom.

I am so glad to see that someone is addressing the need to help college student-athletes succeed. This is a great resource for anyone wishing to understand more about sports in general, but also those that wish to truly understand and decipher some of the challenges that our student-athletes face daily. It also serves as an amazing tool to guide our athletes to success on and off the playing field! -- Joseph Blair, former college and professional basketball player
Turrentine is a lifetime professional working with student athletes. She has put together a must read guide for those interested in providing their athletes with the knowledge and perspectives to get them on a path to success. -- Dick Tomey, former head football coach, Hawaii University, Arizona University, San Jose State University
Champions in the Classroom will be life changing for your student-athletes. What a great way to make student-athletes feel comfortable in the classroom by showing them they already possess all the skills they need to make them an academic success. This book 'gets' it and will make a positive difference. It's written in a way that truly understands how an athlete thinks and how that can be crossed over to the classroom. Penny Turrentine has hit a grand slam, scored a game winning touchdown, made a game winning shot, and has scored a goal with this book. -- Edgar Soto, executive director of Athletics, Pima Community College
In my forty plus years of Division 1 athletics, I have not met, or been associated with, a more dedicated, hardworking person in terms of helping students and student-athletes succeed. -- Jim Rosborough, former associate head basketball coach, University of Arizona national champion basketball team
