College Athletes and Empty pockets

William Resto

NFL Primetime

Nobody wants to live in the dorms for four years. You see the guys who are older, and they have responsibilities. I feel like, as much money as universities make, some of that should come down to the players, as well.

-- Adrian Petterson

Blood, Sweat and Tears

As a high school athlete I know the struggle of waking up at 3:00 am to go and train at the gym, to run a couple of miles a day and watch what I eat in order for me to preform at my best potential. Further more in order to be in tip top shape. One must devote all of his/her time to the sport and to most playing a sport is like working a 24/7 job with no compensation

WHERE IT REALLY COUNTS

"If I would have had the chance to take care of my family through college, I would have probably stayed in college."


"I think so," Clowney said. "They are selling our jerseys with our numbers and making money off of ticket sales, so I think college athletes should get paid." Jadeveon Clowney

The STRUGGLE is real

Guaranteed to make a change

Fairy tales and Broken promises

A $25,000 scholarship may seem like a lot of money, but it really only covers the basics. It covers thousands of dollars in mysterious, unknown university fees, tuition, housing, a meal-plan and multiple hundred-dollar textbooks. Some players, if they come from a low-income household, get a few hundred dollars each semester from Pell Grants which enables them to buy chicken soup instead of chicken-flavored ramen.
