Just go here ; http://yappi.com/forum/index.php?threads/2021-Massillon-football.336885/page-10Most kids that participate in high school sports do it because they love the game, love to compete, and want to be part of the team. Very few do so with the expectation of getting a college scholarship.
Are there a few that are looking for sports to be their ticket? Sure. But it's not the norm.
Like I said....you don't know what you're talking about.
this is how Massillon justifies it's "program"
This is the prototype of how to recruit all the scrubs : hang that college scholarship carrot out there.
it's also how they recruit from all of Stark County. draw them in to "combines" and "college days"
as to why they do it? gawd only knows. oh, they also perpetrate the lie that "the program" "generates revenue" which is complete nonsense, if the program had to generate revenue it would no longer even exist: the program barely covered the coach wife salary (let alone the new turf, upgrade to walkways and last year new bleacher seating in grandstands) in the last year of pre covid full attendance due to the horrible opponents and 4 away games.
but the dopes down there still go around telling each other that the program generates real revenue. LOL
yeah maybe for the contractor cronies getting the construction contracts it generates revenue but not for the school district it doesn't.
that and all the gambling schemes sponsored by not for profits, generates revenue but not for the school district.
