"We encourage all individuals within Oklahoma schools, to seriously consider implementing this program at their school. The ready availability of such a great resource, at no cost to a school, provides the tools necessary to proactively influence student athletes and others."
- Dan Newman, President, Oklahoma Athletic Trainers' Association
"The Life of an Athlete program is an incredible resource and I encourage all universities and schools throughout the state to take advantage of this wonderful gift."
- Terri White, Commissioner of the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services
"I would highly recommend every coach, athletic director, principal, superintendent and school board seriously consider implementing Oklahoma Life of An Athlete into their programs. I believe OKLOA can make a significant positive difference in the lives of athletes and in schools across the state."
- John O’Dell, Oklahoma State Director, Fellowship of Christian Athletes
"OKLOA is not a "pledge sheet" or a "poster" campaign against the use of teen-age alcohol and drug abuse. OKLOA is a comprehensive educational program that speaks to athletes, coaches, parents and patrons in regard to the far reaching effects of use of drugs and alcohol on an athletes’ performance, and the life style changes that occur as a result of chronic use of alcohol and drugs. I would recommend to all of our 481 member schools of the OSSAA that they review this program."
- Ed Sheakley, Executive Director, Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association
