    Jesse's Bio:
    I graduated in 2015 with a B.S. in Exercise Physiology and am now in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program here at CSS. I played on the baseball team at CSS for four years. I was also a statistics tutor and currently work as personal care assistant in Duluth. I love the outdoors, hunting fishing, hiking, etc. While being at St. Scholastica I have noticed the “family” atmosphere and I am truly enjoying every second of it.

Crunch Time

It is unbelievable that the spring 2014 semester is coming to an end already. It seems like I just got back from Christmas break and baseball practices began. I guess the saying is true, “time flies when you’re having fun”.

Academically, this is the time of the semester when papers and projects begin to pile up. In my exercise physiology classes I have been working on three projects and a paper for the past few days. Two are due 4/28, one is due 4/30, and another due 5/2. The paper is for my Strength Training and Conditioning class. We were required to read a 27-page article on Super Slow training and compose a paper summarizing what we had learned from the reading. Two of the projects are writing exercise prescriptions for clients of our choosing. I chose to write one for my roommate who is planning on running the Grandma’s half marathon in mid June. The other I have chosen to write up for my younger brother who is a high school football and baseball player looking for a resistance training program for the summer. The final project is for my Physiological Assessment class, where we have been instructed to create a lab notebook throughout the year including the exercise test protocols and any comments we’ve had during labs.

Along with these projects are 4 more tests and a final. Seems easy right? Well, it has been a very busy past few days and I don’t expect the next few weeks will be much easier. Add on baseball and it gets pretty hectic, especially because our schedule is constantly changing due to the winter we’ve had here in Minnesota.

One of the nicest things about our head coach is that he is very understanding of the importance of academics. I stayed back yesterday and today from a 3-game series against Northwestern (UMAC opponent), in order to get some work done on my paper and projects. Believe me, it is really hard to make the decision to put academics first during the heart of conference play. I’m hoping to finish up all of my work by the end of this week in order to put my attention back on baseball. Ah, the struggles of a student-athlete.
