QUICK THOUGHT: The "student" in student athlete goes unnoticed

By Kyle Quick

--Generally, one would read in the newspaper about which students made All-Conference, All-Districts, or All-State in sports.  Don’t get me wrong, these students deserve the recognition and a story written about their achievement, all of which I have included in this article.

Yet, you can’t relax just yet, because your retirement could easily last two or three decades, which means you’ll need at least two or three decades’ worth of income — which, in turn, means you’ll need the proper savings and investment strategies in place.  And, just as importantly, you’ll also need to be aware of the types of risk that could threaten these strategies.
