It's NOT a foolish decision. The school isn't going anywhere. She can always go back to school.
Maybe - did she make a deal with the school to hold her spot and she'll be back later? I guess it is a smart decision if she does not have any other plans for her future besides playing soccer. The pro teams overseas are not going anywhere either.
I like many parents on this forum believe an education is the path to success & to use soccer as a vehicle to get a "world class education"....believe me, I get it. But There are many factors we don't know that surely shaped her decision. I ask, is your player an outlier/"unicorn" like Pugh?.....probably not, nor is mine. But if she was, she would be presented with a different set of options than Just playing under the lights @ the foothills of Bel Air (though, that sounds pretty sweet).
My point is that there some kids/people with special talent/skills that are better suited to pursue their passion/career, and that may/may not include a college degree.
Sage advice again sir! As usual.
She will be a million dollars ahead by the time that "world class education" would matter.
Probably the most intelligent post Ive ever seen from you.
Granted, the bar isnt very high.
Most of my posts are intelligent, especially the ones where I point out your errors.
I think that Biggie Smalls and Junior Mafia says it best....
I hope she gets money, although i wish my kid got a chance to play against her in college.
Other than that, I could care less.
You are a legend.
Anyone going to Cal State Fullerton Sunday? USC plays CSLA and CSF.
I thought that they were playing Fullerton and the U18 WNT?
Titian website says Fullerton and LA.
I just checked and they are playing the U18 WNT on Friday. My bad. Please carry on.
And the u18s lost
I heard 18s and USC tied....3-3....? Is that right?
@gkrent what was the score of the game?
@pulguita and @Swoosh how did $C look. I saw Keidane and Jen K out at Silverlakes earlier in the month trying to get a little early scouting. I would like to hear your take on the team. Swoosh being the resident prognosticator and all has me curious.
I'm confused. My player was in a scrimmage against the u-18s last night. Anyway the national team lost 3-2 against a combine team put together by klimokova. Fun game to watch. KP is a baller and so is her fellow Stanford commit. If they choose to play those two the way Klimkova does they will be tough!
