Title: My son the football player
Post by: RecycleMichael on August 21, 2016, 09:28:49 am
Just wanted to show some coverage of my boy.

If any of you are college coaches or scouts and want to offer him a scholarship, I would appreciate it.

Nice story. OU needs a good player like your son but, even though their academic standards are high, this boy needs to go to Stanford with that 31 ACT, not one of those whiney Ivy league teams.

Pretty obvious he could go block for Justice Hill in Stillwater. Just my $0.02 with no biases of course...

Does he intend on political science major or law?

Congratulations Michael.

Sounds like a great young man. Please do not let him go to a local school because of football, with his grades and scores and football on top of that he can go someplace great, probably for free.

Look at the parents and grandparents, Braden didnít have much of a choice ;)

Absolutely, like a top 100 National University that ranks as "selective" and also happens to have a football team that has been bowling a lot recently. Stupid little local schools like the University of Tulsa.  ;D  (smallest DI football school, yes we have a chip on our shoulders)

He has Tulsa University on his list.

The rankings that every school uses is put out annually by U.S. News and World Report. It shows that Tulsa is the #86 best school in America.

OU at #108. TU at #86. Good for them. But their tuition is nearly 5 times in state at OU. And, our football team gets to play in prime time!

Still, Stanford at #4  and only $10K more in tuition, AND a good football program is hard to beat. Lots of scholarship money there too. And liberals.  :)
