    Honestly, I think this is sick. I'm sorry, I know the pressures of sports as it is, but now you're going to tell me that colleges are going to come and evaluate kids that are in 7th grade?! It doesn't even seem viable for the colleges, because let's think about how many people get seriously injured between 7th grade and their senior year in high school. These kids are too young to be having to worry about what college is looking at them during a game.

    Let kids play sports to PLAY them. It shouldn't be that competitive until high school, and this is coming from one of the most competitive players you'll ever find!
