A Student-Athlete’s Guide to Success
Authored by Robert Grilli
Edition: First Edition
A playbook prepares you to succeed on the field. This playbook attempts to serve a similar function both on and off the field and offer tips and tools that draw on experiences of a former student-athlete’s personal growth over two decades. I trust my journey and the tools I have utilized to succeed academically, athletically and socially will empower current and prospective student-athletes alike. It will also empower family, friends, coaches, and faculty to connect and help their student-athletes thrive. I wish you the best as you embark on this exciting chapter of your life.
About the author:
My name is Robert Grilli, I’m 5’9 175lbs (as per my baseball roster), have the ability to grow a mean beard which I attribute to my country of origin as it serves as a blanket of warmth during the perceived 365 days of igloo weather and polar bear riding season. Jokes aside, I am from Canada, born and raised. I attended St. Dunstan Elementary school. I graduated from St. Michael’s College school (SMC) in downtown Toronto at 17 and left home at 18. I attended Salt Lake Community College in Utah for two years, I was recruited to and graduated from the University of Houston with Bachelor of Science in Economics with a minor in Business in Spring 2016.
