Interesting Article on The Future of Football

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/08/opini...ss&emc=rss

Quote:In a country where the margin for error is especially thin for black and brown boys in poor and working-class communities, they and their families also had plans: First, the boys would trade their football talent for financial aid packages from local private high schools. Next would come athletic scholarships to college.

Football, to these boys, was not the end but the means.
