I didn't really give anything up I've done before to play college tennis so much as I missed out on doing things in the first place because of tennis. I didn't have the time to commit to pledging a fraternity (athletes I knew who went greek usually ended up quitting the sport). Travel during the season was tough on your social life and spring break meant a long road trip with the team instead of partying in Panama City Beach/South Padre Island/Cancun like everyone else. Academically I had to load up on labs and tougher classes in the fall semester but didn't have to take summer classes or take a victory lap (5th year) to graduate.
