HS Football Player Caught In Web Of Lies

Simply unbelievable that in this age where college recruiting is so fanatically followed that this kid could pull the wool over people's eyes for this long. What say you all? Is this some cautionary tale about the hype that follows athletes even when they're in high school or just about one kid who got caught up in his own delusions?

Sounds like a few people who post here.


I don't get it, why are the police involved? What was the illegal thing that he did?

Hahahaah, I love how he acts all dramatic putting the Cal hat on, then stands to wave to the crowd

Quoting Airfoilsguy (Reply 1):

He claimed he was duped by a bogus recruiter, but that was also a lie. So he may be charged with falsifying a police report.

Reading the whole article really makes one feel bad for the kid. It seems he was so wrapped up in the idea of being a Division I football player that he let his fantasy control his reality.
