Now in its seventh season, Big 12 Champions for Life has featured the life-changing stories of over 350 student-athletes and university alumni. The young men and women who have earned a scholarship to compete in their chosen sports embody the defining characteristics of a champion: leadership, perseverance, community service, and discipline. These leaders have used their platforms and voices to stand up for what they believe in, inspiring their teammates and communities – and creating change. New stories from student-athletes representing each of the conference’s ten universities will be shared throughout the 2021-22 academic year.
