Thank you Reid Travis!

You probably don’t know this but Reid Travis is a senior at DeLaSalle (Minneapolis, Minn.) who recently announced that, after a big summer on the AAU circuit, he’s decided not to play football in his high school finale.

That’s really smart on so many levels.

His ticket is on the hardwood – with dozens of offers from elite programs – and kudos to him for recognizing that and making a mature decision.

Oh I hear what you’re thinking: “How can you say that! He turned his back on his team!”

No, he chose him; and he did it before the season ever started giving his football team ample time to find a viable replacement under center.

I wish more players would make the hard call; there are plenty of basketball players who wouldn’t have to pay college tuition if they’d just walk onto a football field.

Don’t let your misguided dreams cause the nightmare of student loan payments in the future.

As you were…


“I am so hungry for football, like y’all don’t even know. You probably think you do but you don’t. Trust me. Real talk.” – Hoover (Birmingham, Ala.) cornerback Marlon Humphrey
