football, two D3 schools and one D1AA school recruited him. The D3 school with it's scholarships and awards made it the price of the only other state school option he would consider if not playing football. At that point it was no brainer given reputation of the school and its rankings.
Had a remarkable four years, received a fabulous education, accepted job offer during Xmas break sr. year. Enjoyed a great football experience having started 4 years and elected captain and team MVP his senior year.
He paid off his student loans a few years back.
At times, I think I had just as much fun as he did what with visiting campus for various events including home game tailgaters which were always outstanding and the people were the best.
