Looks like this case will open a WHOLE CAN OF WORMS for NCAA Football as a whole. Competition within teams creates a physically combativeness environment to make the squad, especially NFL prospects and thosethat depend on scholorships to pay their way to thru school. These athletes will experience blood, sweat and tears to make it, or they drop voluntarily. This kid is not NFL material, but because his dad was, he thought there was a "yellow brick road" to the pro's. Many other players TRANSFER if their playing style does not fit-in! The closest this kid will get to an NFL playing field is the selling peanuts in the stands!
