About Champion

NCAA Champion celebrates college sports and the people who give it a special place in American society, from the coaches and athletics directors who shape the collegiate experience to student-athletes who achieve as much off the field as on it. Champion entertains and informs while focusing on the most important contributor to college sports: the student-athlete, whose successes provide rich and far-reaching meaning to the definition of what makes a Champion.
