Student athletes: You either are one or you know one. From boasting about the endless grind or complaining about not going on spring break, student athletes will never let you forget how much of their life is spent in the gym or on the field.
And now, student athlete memes are the latest Twitter trend to grace our newsfeed, and they are giving all of us life. The formula is simple: a two-line conversation between literally anyone and an over the top student athlete. Add a bible verse and a surplus of emojis and you’ve got yourself a viral tweet. The Internet is eating these up and we couldn’t be happier.
These are the best student athlete memes on the internet right now.

Student athletes. Ever heard of them? Of course you have! If you are in any part of the conventional schooling system–college, high school, middle school, elementary school, whatever–chances are more than good that someone at your school, who identifies as both a student and an athlete, takes up a significant amount of space in your life, both physical and emotional. This is such a common phenomenon, I assume, that it has led us to this meme:
In truth, I do have a certain amount of respect for student athletes. I ran cross country in high school, and while I was by no means good at the sport–I joined the team because everyone on it was technically on varsity, which looks good on college applications, but would often skip practice on our “free run” days to run half a mile to the bakery by my high school where the man who worked there would give me free bread because I stopped by so regularly–I can attest to the fact that playing a sport while also being in school is hard. You’re in practice for hours after school, expected to do homework afterwards, and have to commit most of your weekends to games, meets, and extra practices.
But it is also true that student athletes, particularly ones with a glint in their eye of making it big in college or pro sports, tend to veer ever-so-slightly Extra. They work hard and, well, they want everyone on earth to know that they work hard, too. In any case, this student athlete meme does not lie, and for this, I love it. So, check out the best student athlete memes that will definitely make you LOL:
