Does anyone know how this kids senior football season is going? The only thing I hear about this kid is that his grades rnt to hot and he might not be able to graduate early... if anyone has his senior year stats thatll be great too.....?
He's homeschooled though, right? Doesn't that make it a lot easier to graduate early? I feel like he has an "in" with the principal...
He's in a charter school. He just happens to call it "like being homeschooled, but not at home."
that you heard his grades were bad? LMAO LMAO! you should seriously kill whoever told you that. His test scores are high enough to get him into Stanford. The reason he might not be able to graduate EARLY is because he wouldn't have TIME to finish EARLY.
As far as his season is going:
172-264, 2987 yards, 11.31 yds/att, 21-8 TD-INT, 63 carries, 662 yards, 10.51 ypa, 10 TD. His team is 7-3.
"you heard his grades were bad? LMAO LMAO! you should seriously kill whoever told you that."
that made you laugh your ass off?
that part was actually quite sarcastic and a parody of the way people respond to each other on the internet. the only thing on this board that has actually made me laugh so far today was a comment about George Morales
didn't catch that, my bad
sarcasm and parody are hard to pick up in type
why did you bring the color of his skin into the end of your post?
what about asian quarterbacks?
LOL, that is true, Harbaugh and the best academic school in the universe did offer him a scholarship. I also saw a Wisconsin fan making fun of us for offering a "home schooled kid" and that our academics must have declined under richrod, I pointed out that he also had offers from WISCONSIN, Penn State, Stanford, BYU, Northwestern, Florida and Virginia.
Schools will offer almost anyone if they really really want him. Elite athletes have an easier time getting in.
last i heard, if memory serves, was that he was being home schooled and had an SAT good enough to get him into Stanford
In fact, he has fine grades, but he needs to complete a few more English courses, and he is cutting it close to wire.
that it's "a few more English courses" - who takes a few of any single course in their senior year? Most likely, he has one or two classes - English or otherwise - that are core requirements that he has not yet completed. I don't know how homeschooling works and if he can just take an aptitude or competency exam to earn a waiver, but that would seem ideal.
is his team still in the playoffs??
yes they r
Home schooled kids have a harder time enrolling early than public school kids because they have a lot more paperwork to fill out and tests to take before they go to college.
Also, I remember reading an article about how Tate was not doing well in public school, but then once he was home-schooled his dad got him a bunch of tutors and his SAT scores went up really high.
when is the deadline to enroll?
graduate to enroll at Michigan? I know several college graduates who have not graduated from high school. One got a GED at age forty just so his wife would quit teasing him.
Neither here nor there, but the idea of being home-schooled and not having good grades makes me giggle. Is mom failing him? The people his family is paying?
of lack of family involvment in the educational process.
Research shows this.
I actually looked - he's not really "home schooled". He's enrolled in a public charter school in San Diego that offers 1-on-1 education. So, his teachers are actual high school teachers that aren't strictly employed by the family.
That would make a lot more sense in terms of the grades and it would also explain why it will be harder for him to get his work done early enough to enroll early. Straight home-schooling didn't really fit the description of the problem.
He's in a charter school. He's not actually being "homeschooled." Big, big difference.
So yes, it's not inconceivable that he has "bad grades."
he was behind in his coursework that would allow him to enroll early. papa force is on top of it though.
Pretty good stats. Did anyone else notice that on Halloween he had a 138 completion percentage? That's outstanding, I hope he can continue that in college.
