We Will Make Sure You Attend Here

While in high school a good friend of mine started all four years on the basketball team. He was named All State his senior, and helped lead our team to the regional championship. Ryan averaged almost nineteen points a game, made over seventy-five percent of his three-pointers and shot over ninety percent from the free-throw line.

Once again, an athlete is having doors opened for him that any ordinary person can't have opened.

This really bothers me when I see people having special treatment only because of his ability to perform a sport. I know Ryan is my friend, but I loved that school and still have hopes of going back, but now that I know they are willing to help an athlete
