Re: Division I, II, III or NAIA Offers

Dr. Greg Dale from Duke University is speaking Thursday, Jan. 4, at YISD Theater at 6 pm about "Keys to Enjoying Sports - and Realities of College Recruitment. This would be a great time to understand all of these "offers" that are put on the table.

It is hard at times to accept reality, regardless of sport, and realize that it is best to call it an end.

For example, D 3 schools do not offer athletic scholarships. Many can get you other types of aid, but don't be fooled into the "offer". Learn and understand the cost of the education that you will be forking out and above all, the area of studies offered. After all, is it not about your future and your education when you get a degree? I knew a vb player who had a $16,000 "offer" based on academics to play D 3 volleyball. Well that offer left her still paying $24,000 a year. And she changed her dream major because she could not handle the class load. And the roster had like 22 players on it! She totally regrets it.

Not to be negative here. But you need to look at everything before deciding what to do.

As you stated FalconFeather "need to look at everything before deciding what to do"

That is why people are calling it OFFERS and people are not calling it FREE RIDES so some parents and players out there know the difference.

But yes I agree with you FalconFeather there are still a lot of parents and players out there that do not understand the Academic "OFFERS" and what they might be getting themselves into to when it's all said and done. Parents and players need to do their own research to know exactly what they are getting into and if the Academic "OFFER" is really beneficial to them in the long run at that particular University of College. Parents and players must look really close at those Academic "OFFERS" and do the numbers as to how much $ if any will come out of their own pocket.

Parents and players educate yourselves. All too many players dropout or rather walkon after learning it was not beneficial to them for they did not educate themselves about the Academic "OFFER" and that particular University or College. Academic "offers" are not for everyone.

Re: Division I, II, III or NAIA Offers

If you're looking to earn and obtain a Degree it really does not matter if you attend and play for a Division I, II, III or NAIA Program. Nowhere within the Degree does it read Division I, II, III or NAIA. It plain as day reads Degree. Wake up and go get your education and have fun playing football for a Program no matter the level.

Congrats to all players who have received offers to Universities and Colleges at any level.

Re: Division I, II, III or NAIA Offers

Very well put!

Re: Division I, II, III or NAIA Offers

Nowhere did I say a degree from a non D1 school was not worth it. I said to make sure you do your due diligence in checking into the academics offered and the final cost of the school (out of pocket) to you in the end to see if it is worth it. Too often I have seen parents and students disappointed in the end because the offer was not what they thought it was. Some of your smaller schools are liberal arts schools or may not have the offerings that a larger school would have.

For example, if your set on playing fb and studying engineering, you can pretty much forget about that at a smaller school. The closest thing to an engineering degree was a degree in applied physics and it was called pre-engineering at a D-3 school here in Texas, for example. That's great. But after getting your applied physics degree, you would still need to continue your education for another 2 years at a school with the engineering degree field that you would want.

So as a parent and a student athlete, you need to sit down and decide what you want. In the example above, if that is what the want, then fine. But for some, they may not want to go to school for 6 years for basically what you could have accomplished in four. You have to lay everything out on the table and decide what is best. That is all that I am saying.

Things are made much easier when the school offers your academic degree of choice, you play football, and not much comes out of pocket. But unless it is a full ride situation, you have alot to look at.

The same can be said of simply choosing a college to attend and getting a degree without playing a sport. In the end, what is the best situation, when all things are considered, scholarships, grants, aid, housing, staying at home, cost of school, travel expenses, etc..

I guess I sound like a negative Nellie, but many people get caught up with the chance to continue playing and forget to look at the whole picture. That is all. I just want people to be prepared. It must be the counselor in me coming out.

Trinity and Wesleyan here in Texas offer an engineering degree...:grimacing:

Lot's of D3 schools do, look it up...

Re: Division I, II, III or NAIA Offers

Look up Texas Lutheran (applied physics) or Hardin Simmons, or Howard Payne, or Sul Ross, or McMurray. They do not offer anything in engineering. All I am trying to say is do your homework and figure out what is most important by giving an example of a student who wants to study engineering but, for example, has only an offer from lets say Sul Ross. What is more important?????? Going and playing football in front of 500 people and not getting a degree in what I really wanted or not playing football and simply going to school and getting a degree in what I wanted. Everyone has different ideas of importance. I am not saying one is more important than the other. BUT LOOK AT THE WHOLE PICTURE.

Sorry to be so blunt in this example, but some of you just don't get what I am trying to say.

My son just graduated from ENMU in December and he played football there as well. He did not get any type of scholarship until his senior year but it did definitely help lol. Bottom line is getting that degree and then applying it in the real world. No matter what level it may be. Division 1 looks great when the kids go but so many do not complete even one year at school. The class work load, practices, workouts etc are very time consuming. Plus if the athlete, any sport or gender, is not mature enough they will quit and come home. My son went to JC first and it was a wake up call because he was in California away from home. My nephew, from N.J., is wrestling in college and they gave him a 2 week break and he is back for practices and meets. Pl Congratulations to all kids that have colleges interested in them coming to get their education and play a sport there. I believe we get so caught up in the level after the "D" not realizing that many of those kids, any sport and any state, will not stick it out or they'll drop to another level.

Very well put Hounds. Sadly in sports like baseball there have been way too many kids go off to school whether it be a JC or smaller D level or NAIA and not last a year from home. But then again, that can be said of numerous kids who simply go away to college for academics. Many kids have a hard time being away on their own.

Just curious, what does a Division 3 offer look like since they cannot offer you a scholarship?
It usually consists of academic scholarship money plus any grants or federal aid the athlete might qualify for.

And that is why great grades are ever so vital if your desire is to continue to receive an education after high school.

Money is money, help is help, and comes in so many ways.
