All I know my son is a straight A student and will get more money academically than your holdbacks. He also in the end will be more success in life because he worked hard to achieve without being held back. Life is hard and sports fade away. Academics take your further in the end. So stop the squabbling and put more money into getting that area then trying to get an athletic scholarship for something that last only a few years. At least I can sleep at night knowing that I have my priorities straight and my son too.
Grades are boring. It's not about money. It's not about college and the job after. It's about being the best at the highest level, which for lacrosse is being D1 champs. No one goes to Denver or Syracuse because they are great schools.
