My son wasn’t (wink wink) recruited by a Catholic private because they were part of the state athletic association. Several players told him it would be a great move. He was offered an academic scholarship providing he played at least two sports. Figure that one out!
The academics weren’t as good as our high school’s gifted program. So he passed. He gambled his soph year (third year for new coach) would be a turn around year for a program in the dregs for twenty-two years. They came in second followed by two conference championships.,
