College athletes are not going to contribute to our generation’s future. The majority of them will end their athletic careers after graduating and maybe, MAYBE a select few will go on but what happens when they’re bones get old, or they become injured, or they simply are unable to play anymore? Just because I am waiting to have children and I grew up in a home where I was fortunate enough to have successful, supportive parents who worked hard every day for what they had and what they gave to us, I shouldn’t be able to have financial assistance in college? Not just me, but all of the people like me. I believe sincerely that our government is absolutely corrupt, and my hope for it continues to be significantly failing.
