Who cares if many 3 star or less players are never given an opportunity to go pro or if the just out of high school athlete may risk serious injury and a far steeper climb to "make it" in the pros. High school athlete graduates, by and large, have not peaked and will be up against seasoned older tougher players wanting to keep their hopes alive as well. If the athlete never makes the pros, what does he have left as a back up high paying career if all the athlete has is a High School Diploma, or a G.E.D.? Be careful for what you wish...and remember the grass is not always greener on the other side. Last edited: Aug 7, 2020 Troy70, Rodgarnay51 and Hockey10 like this.
