For his senior year


The better question would be:

If your son was a massive baseball/football talent would you allow him to continue to play football his senior year of high school? I'm talking Josh Booty type talent. Do you risk one hit destroying his baseball career/automatic million $+ signing bonus as an 18 year old?

2) calm down with Adrian Peterson comparisons. Guy is obviously exception to the rule.


I'm nto comparing the talents, but a knee injury is not a career ender any more. I hasn't been for a long time. The types of injuries that can end a career are so rare, it is not worth worrying about. It is truly amazing how people fret over things that have basically no chance of happening, while doing risky things every day. He is more likely to be killed in a car wreck than have a career ending injury playing HS football.

If I was a college coach and saw the kid shagged it/refused to play in high school to protect his college career, it would make me question how much he would bust his arse on the college level to protect his pro career.

Should college coaches rest their top talent to save them for the NFL?

should NFL coaches rest their top talent when they are on their first contract to save them so they can get to the 2nd, bigger contract?

Clearly, we should rest all elite talent.

At least for college, kids are accepting paid scholarships to expensive universities and are receiving an education for their football contributions and services. Highschool, kids are risking for nothing when they have paid scholarships on the line and NFL futures ahead of them. We're talking a minimum of 100k value usually upwards of tens of multi million dollar futures.
