I think I posted it before. Two equal players, one with "one of those parents" from the area, and the other from far away.............far away player gets chosen every time.
Interesting observation a couple of posts ago that training in college to go to the pros = no support after graduation for the school. Wonder how that conclusion was arrived at.
Anyway, my small slice of experience tells me that the few colleges I am familiar with are very happy when their athletes turn pro...........even if they get zero cash donations from any particular pro later.
