You are 6'1 and white. Could you get your speed to 4,6 in the forty? With much less effort than it would take to develop a 120 mph serve. I could get you a full D1 football scholarship in the MAC as a safety after four years of high school football. Unless you are a wimp.

It doesn't take that much for football. I know our high school sends one a year to D1, and some to d2 or 1aa. Tennis? None yet.
