This is Hawaii offering an island (5th grade) resident a scholarship. Pretty much a self promotion act. Rolovich knows this family as older brother Jake Lacaden played for Rolovich at Nevada.
What a time to be alive? I wouldn't want it. Let the kid have his childhood.
Looking.........way back. Years ago you had mom and pop hardware stores, grocery stores, pharmacies, and even farms. Not anymore! Giant chains dominate the landscape. Mom and pops are long gone. Only the biggest, strongest, most efficient survive.
Same in college football. Used to be high school players didn't even think of college football until the 11th grade and they played HS football where they lived. Specialty camps? Few and far between.
Now, well you gotta go to a academy or a powerhouse Catholic School program or else you fall behind. Playing for your hometown is mostly gone if you look really good. Same for high school basketball. And the youngsters now need to concentrate on one sport. The landscape is constantly changing to a few biggest, strongest programs, everybody else fades away. Soon, if not already, it will be near impossible for many programs to ever achieve greatness as only a few will dominate.
Where are we headed when 5th graders are given national attention and have all that focus and weight upon them?
