College Recruiting – How Young is Too Young?

We will be discussing the recruiting of 7th and 8th graders by college coaches.  Is it too young?  Is it a good thing or could it hurt youth sports?  Join us tomorrow.  If you’d like more details sign up for my weekly newsletter.  I’ll be sending it out today and I’ll have some more details of the background of this discussion.  Don’t miss it.

Coach Mike behind the mic.

We will be setting up the upcoming shows for the most part today. I have a number of interesting rules from the NCAA recruiting regulations that I’m going to mention. And we will be talking about the two high school boys in Texas who leveled the ref from behind. Do you think they should be banned for life from football? Since they are seniors (so I heard) how much “football” life do they have left? Should the ref press charges? What else? You’ll have to tune in to find out. If you can’t catch the life show at, then please come back to catch the podcast.

Have a great day.
