You can focus on getting to the NFL and lose nothing also getting a quality education though. You don't have to pick one.I think we’re arguing semantics. I know academics were important to Calvin and his family.
My point is, even guys like Calvin or Andrew Luck, playing in the NFL is their main focus.
Those guys are smart enough to know football doesn’t last forever and value getting a good education (and making connections) along the way.
We have a lot of guys like that in our program. We also can’t bring in guys the dwags can that see no value in education and won’t put in any effort there. Thankfully there are planets of really good players that will put in effort both on and off the field.
