Hat tip to NEG’s Coach Chris Suggs on the Chance Of Making It To The NFL. There is a picture on the Internet from a California school with the following facts:

ODDS OF MAKING IT IN THE NFL

If you are lucky enough to be one of the 6.5% to become a NCC football player, and one of the 1.5% of THAT group to make it to the NFL, you will be lucky to get THREE years out of it. At a minimum salary, you wont make enough to live for the rest of your life.

What’s going to provide for you and your family after football is over?
Your college education!


It is the same for other sports as well.

The NCAA released a NCAA Pro Sports Study in 2013 for all major sports.

Use your sports talents to get an education, it is a good play.
