A defense contractor has proposed an initiative by which the military would fund athletic college scholarships in exchange for mandatory service, Sportico reported.
Long time reader, never posted. Saw this article today. Thought it was an interesting idea. Would provide scholarships for college athletes in all sports except football and basketball with no service obligation while in school, but would have a commitment that would start after their college career has ended.
Would be interesting to see how it works out if the service branches adopt it as a recruiting option. Could be beneficial for kids who want to continue wrestling after high school but can’t get a full ride.
