I fully support this young mans decision. I personally have a different opinion about this than most I would assume. I first think about all the current athletes who play that has already been held back of course at a younger age but they are still eligible to play because of the birthday falling where it works. I have talked to a many of a parent who just wasn't thinking of a child playing a sport at the time of there birth. Sure some parents are all over it but not as many as you think. Then you have these blossoming high school students who have good birthdays but the 4 year rule keeps them from reclassifying. Then a parent will say something like man, I wished I would have thought about this years ago, what might have been. I honestly see this as one of those rare if ever moments where some kids who probably would have can now because of a rule change for one year. When I first heard of this possibility I thought, man it would be nice. Then I thought, it will never happen. Well it did. I work in construction and get around all over the state. I talk to a lot of people especially about football. Honestly, the comment I hear the most is "you would be crazy not to come back". I get on these forums and am kinda shocked that there is so many who are dead against it. I realize there are always going to be people against anything. I cant possibly make myself get upset at a kid who decides they might try to use another year to better themselves. What I see, is more opportunity to improve that act score, and if one gets a better scholarship then why not. I'll donate my money for the cause. I see too many athletes giving up here in the mountains that now carry a backpack to a drug dealer walking up and down a road looking like a skeleton. Sad thing is, those people get more of my tax money than a kid coming back for one year to play football.
