Description

Aaron Hernandez was one of eight players who graduated high school early to join the powerhouse University of Florida football team. Six of them would go on to play in the NFL. Forget the senior prom, it was time to learn a playbook as thick as a dictionary. But perhaps the most important lesson he learned was after he got into a bar fight his freshman year: when you're a football player, actions don’t always have consequences.

That "Felony - stolen laptop" mentioned, was none other than Cam Newton.

The irony of his high school principal saying that maybe if he had stayed an extra 6 months in high school he may have seen the value in finishing college, when he left high school not being able to read at a college level is too much.

This is absolutely amazing to me! I'm not really into football. nonetheless, I'm AWARE of Hernandez. IT'S unbelievable how colleges recruit HIGH school football players and the money they earn...
