Being the biggest/fastest/strongest/smartest certainly helps. Honestly not sure why you wouldn't do it. You know, unless you can't afford to give that gift to your son. I get it. Somebody's got to work down at the docks. Appreciate it!
This has got to be 91/Gilman dad. Don't be so obvious.
None of these holdbacks are the smartest. If they were top of the class, the parents would realize that is much more important than being a d3 lax recruit and paying full tuition anyway.
You can’t get into a top D3 academically select school on grades alone, there are too many kids with straight As. Being a top lax player is a good hook.
