Is College Still Good Idea?

2011 Championship Game

My oldest just played in his league’s basketball championship game last Saturday. He’s sort of looking away towards the angle of where his dad is taking the picture. They didn’t win by a few points, however he has came a long way this season. This is his third year playing and I guess his hard work has finally payed off. He lucked out and was on a great team this year and got a little taste of what playing sports can offer. When he was younger, he leaned more towards playing football, but luckily (because what mother wants to possibly face those type of injuries) basketball has seemed to stick and it has been a pretty positive experience for him. As long as he keeps his grades up, he can play. If nothing else, it will hopefully at least keep his mind off of the girls for awhile.

But I guess my biggest hope like most parents of athletes, is that it will possibly land him a scholarship for college. Even at the young age of 12, he’s already got his eye on a few possible colleges. I’m not one that believes it’s ever too soon to have at least some type of direction. My thoughts are that since his dad and I aren’t rich, and I don’t want for him to take on the massive amount of debt that often comes with four year colleges, that a scholarship is really the only reasonable way of him going. At this point, it at least looks like a possibility as long as he really does enjoy a sport and can excel in it.
