Financial Fitness: Peoria Student Athletes Making Moves On, Off Field

On the first day of practice, students in the Centennial High School football program received an important lesson in financial literacy, with the help from Coach Richard Taylor and NFL Linebacker Brandon Copeland.

Copeland explained to the 180 athletes in the program that in order to live out their dreams, they must learn how to manage their money, especially because young athletes have access to income that student athletes in the past did not have.
