It’s the dream of every high school athlete, continuing to compete in college, Division I, with a full-ride scholarship. And it’s a dream a lot of parents have for their kids too, after spending countless years supporting them, physically, financially and emotionally, in their chosen sport.
So it’s pretty shocking when a young man who’s a high school senior with a very promising future playing football, turns down scholarships to play for more than a dozen Division I colleges. Almost even more surprising is that his parents are supporting him in this decision.
It’s great to see a talented, young person making a well thought-out, rational decision and to also see his family behind him 100 percent. Watch this video and tell us if you think he made the right choice.
