    Lot of uninformed on the site. Here is a website that answers all of the questions discussed. First let me say again. This is a huge opportunity for this young player. Congratulations. To you idiots that are speaking ill of where he is going. Shut up. He is doing the right things.
    But the facts are most smaller schools simply cannot award full athletic scholarships to their players. There is always the exception to every rule so.
    Waldorf is a D1 NAIA school located in Iowa. Looking up their, Viking see the use of the word, stats it offered the following
    Waldorf. Forest City IA NAIA 8,012 21,260 21,260 420 460 18 22 66%. The numbers represent in order, avg scholarship awarded, annual in state costs out of state costs SAT Score averages and % of students accepted that apply. This Division is capped with 24 scholarships to be used by football. That means most, not all will break up scholarships to attract more players. Average athletes in football is generally between 80 – 100.

    Uhhh you know you’re absolutely wrong , right? Various institutions award athletic scholarships that cover full tuition, fees, room, and board. Stop being a hater. This young man gets to continue his education and play at the collegiate level.

    @ BT Bear: I completely agree with you about recruiting, as well as the player transfers that are resulting from it. The CIF Southern Section has been ethically deficient, but I believe there’s still enough time for us to alter the course of events.

    Sorry, there is no way he got a full Athletic scholarship. They might have matched some money so good for him. Hope they have a major he actually is interested in….. Criminal Justice….. LOL. Can’t do anything with that.

    Why is Northview Abbreviated with NV? It’s 1 word. Just saying.

    Not a coach, just a fan. Good try though.

    Interesting. My mistake, I assumed since there was a big signing ceremony it was a full ride scholarship.

    @BT Bear
    Sorry for that, I’ll make sure to use the proper word next time. Also, check my spelling before I post. Thank you for that.

    To the young man, Congratulations! What a great opportunity being placed in front of you. Go and make the most of it. To “Viking” learn which meaning of the word you are using. The words plain and plane are homophones: they sound alike but have different meanings. As an adjective, plain means simple, uncomplicated, common, or obvious. The noun plain refers to a flat, usually treeless stretch of land. As a noun, plane can refer to an airplane, a tool for smoothing wood, or a level surface. That good old Northview education kicking in. As for recruiting it is wrong. Either we open it up for everyone to do or CIF grows a pair and starts enforcing rules. Just because everyone does it, doesn’t make it right.

    When you get into D-2 and below, usually the better you are the more money you get. Or rather the more they want you. So whatever money a kid gets, usually the school will get grants to fill in the rest for whatever the cost is to go to that school. Sometimes it’s fully paid for, sometimes it isn’t. Just all depends on the money the coaches and school gives the player.

    Your trying to call out the coaches at Northview because a kid got a scholarship to a lower division school. Nobody promises D-1 scholarships. Who does that? That is plane stupid if somebody is doing that. Northview has been getting kids out to all sorts of lower division schools. Look it up. Even when Northview wasn’t winning they were getting kids to college to play. It just so happen that Antwaun and Comstock got D-1 scholarships. They were really good! Kids leaving to go play at other schools has been going on for awhile now. Fact! South Hills just got 2 big transfers. Did they promise D-1 scholarships? Look at Arcadia, how about Charter Oak. Those are just a few school. Look at West Covina right now. You think after the year they just had those kids are not gonna want to just head down the road to South Hills? Nobody is forcing these kids to leave there friends to go play somewhere else. You can’t sit here and blame coaches because kids want to play at your school. What are the coaches supposed to say? No, you can’t come here? The Tribune just had an article on all the kids in the area that just transferred to other schools. Go check it out if you haven’t seen it.

    Is this kid gonna go to the NFL. Chances that is are is slim to none. So thats really good advice there idiot. Pass up a chance to continue playing football and a 4 year degree to go to Citrus JC. Man o man. Baffles me that people talk about the youth these days. But i think its actually the adults and the ones who are raising these kids these days who need a reality check.

    I see that reading comprehension is not your strength, hopefully coaching is. Once again it’s great he’s going to college, and I’m not knocking the school. All I said is Waldorf is the the picture you paint when you recruit these kids. Fact! If you did, many of these kids wouldn’t leave their friends. Fact! I just wish all these coaches that recruit would tell the truth. If they did say we’ll help you get to a NAIA school and the kids were on board I’m all for it. But I’ve seen the lies in person and it stinks.

    LOL….. I don’t know about sending kids to IA.. It’s a college I guess. But the closest NAIA schools that are good are Southern Oregon and Arizona Christian. Might be best to have just stayed home, saved $ and played at Citrus. Hopefully this kid gets a degree and doesn’t end up working security at his alma mater.

    Really? So a scholarship to a 4 year school to continue on and playing isn’t good enough? So let me get this straight, a kid needs to go to a Division 1 football school for it to mean anything? Good talk bro, shows how really stupid you are. Unbelievable! Northview doesn’t promise Division 1 scholarships to kids, if the kid is good enough to play D-1 they’ll find you. The coaches work there butt off at Northview to make sure these kids have good grades in order to better position each player that wants to continue on there education and athletic career beyond high school. That’s what they do! Many coaches are not out there doing that, they just care about wins and loses. Think a little bit before you come on here and post something stupid. Unreal
