Here's the thing. It's not about scholarship or money. It's about getting to play at that level regardless of the how it's paid for. When Elijah Justice went to Louisville a few years ago in basketball without a scholarship it was still a big deal because he got to play at that level. Who cares how its paid for its not like Joe Blow can just go to Morehead and pay his way onto the ball field, this kid earned his spot.

It bothers you this much? That’s sad.

Man people stay trying to rip a kid down for no reason. It would kill some of you all to say, congrats to a great athlete. Instead Mr. Technicality has to come in here and attempt to take away from it. Some of y’all are losers. Congrats to a great athlete with unreal speed.

Lol I’ve never been a fan of belfry, but it kills me when grown men wanna take away from student athletes or bash kids. No matter what team, you can hate on the team or the coach all ya want, but taking away credit from kids is dumb

I mean no harm. I couldn't resist ...Seriously, I congratulate the kid, and wish him well.

Hey, fun fact, I NEVER SAID ANYTHING BAD ABOUT THE KID! Maybe you should read it all again. My criticism is with adults and their egos.

Regardless of how you explained it, you’re coming off looking like an a&&. Morehead is D1 FCS. Whether they offer athletic scholarships or not is not relevant. Many other D1 FCS also do not offer athletic scholarships, yet they are still, wait for it... D1 FCS. It’s an amazing concept that may Be hard for you to grasp. At the end of the day, you’re wrong and petty for picking THAT issue to base your argument on.

Did you even play college? At what level? Do you understand the getting up at a sometimes ungodly hour to get a workout in, then go to school, then go to practice, then film/position group meetings (or before practice), then to study hall, then maybe an hour or two of free time and then back to bed? Meanwhile, a LOT of college kids (not all, but a lot), build their class schedules around not getting up before 9, trying to load days so they have other days off (some do it to work, but many don’t), get to go out partying when they want, etc. and they’ll be the first ones complaining (or people like you) that athletes in college are “stealing” money from average students. They sound like fools for that complaint to those of us who made the commitment and showed the discipline to stick to that routine. And you do too.

Say “Congrats” and move on. Start another thread if the subject bothers you that much.

The crux of his complaint seems to be that I used the division in the title versus the school name. It's just the way I named it dude, I wasn't trying to imply any type superiority or be arrogant in any way, it's just how I write. Had it been NAIA, DII or DIII then I would have used that in the title as well.

Its unfathomable too me the lengths some folks will go. Congrats to Taveon! FWIW....I can honestly say that IMO, he was the most electrifying running back in the storied history of the Pirates. Every time he touched the ball....you just knew he had a chance to take it to the house.

Elisha did walk on but he did get a full scholarship

Congrats to Taveon! Love seeing small town kids get to play at the next level and the more that does get the chance also brings more attention from colleges to the area for other kids. Good luck young man!
