    I checked this and you are correct. According to the Cincinnati postmaster if a letter is addressed to an athlete in C/O the school or coach they have to give the letter to them in a timely fashion.

    I think the letters are also good motivators to the players. I know if I received a letter from a big D1 school I would have been fired up and ready to show my stuff to send a tape. Somerset's coach gives the letters to the athletes as soon as he receives them and even puts together films to send to the colleges of the players choice. A player should never be deprived of a chance to go to college and play football.

    Ashland's Coach Hart gives the kids college letters as soon as he gets them.
