When should you begin taking the ACT or SAT?

SoSportz.com- For high school student-athletes the ACT and SAT test are crucial to getting into a college and playing a sport at the next level. Some say the tests are pointless and some say they're culturally bias but the bottom line is that it's a test that needs to be taken seriously.  An athlete can have all the talent in the world but without a passing score their talent can be overlooked.

When should you begin taking the tests? Most students take the tests in the spring of their junior year and the fall of their senior year. I advise to take it earlier so you can get familiar with the test and to give yourself more opportunities to make the required score for the college you want to attend.  There are prep courses to prepare for the tests as well. You have to work hard in your education just like you do in your sports.  It's time to change the game and take your education to another level. Below are the testing dates for both ACT and SAT.

Say what you want but Tim Tebow is a winner

SoSportz.com- He's not a NFL quarterback, his accuracy is horrible, he needs to change his throwing mechanic, he's too religious. These are just some of the criticism that Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow has endured since entering the league in 2010.  It's obvious that he's not the prototypical quarterback that we are used to seeing but since taking over the starting gig, Tebow is 4-1 putting the Broncos back in the playoff race. It hasn't been pretty but when the jersey number 15 steps on the field, the guy is a winner. He just has that "It" factor. When the game is on the line and a big play needs to be made, he seems to make the play. He's a game changer and his confidence will continue to grow as the season continues. Is Tebow the future of the organization? That question will be answered very clearly if the win column keeps going up.
