The jealousy and judgement you exhibit towards people who achieve far more than you can ever dream, is unreal.

On the opposite side is Godwin Joe. Dad is not in the kid's life and mom wanted him to work instead of playing football. Got him self a scholarship and told his family to stay home, coach and teammates are his real family: http://www.news-herald.com/article/H...ORTS/180209530

Ha ha ha...me??? Non answer?? All you do is get on here and criticize the thoughts and opinions of others. I'd like to see a stance by you, an original thought or opinion.

Look, it's REALLY, REALLY hard to get an athletic scholarship. Very few get that. When you take something as simple as selecting a college and turn it into a media event where you pick a hat, you are setting yourself up to tremendous expectations...expectations that 90% or more never attain. Why set yourself up that way?? Sure ESPN loves it and the families love it because it's great TV, but man, what a selfish way to begin your college career.
Pick your school by yourself, tell your family and close friends. Then just get to work. We'll know in 2-3 years if you are elite, or just had a great high school career. Colleges don't care, your just a member of a 20-25 person freshman class that 75% will either quit school, quit the sport, transfer or have an injury that keep them from playing. It's a great recruiting tool for them, so they love it.

Exactly, that's why they are celebrating, you dolt.

Wrong.
