I guess it depends upon the young teen and their level of thinking at the

time. Some are driven by the academics AND sports, others simply by one OR the other. As much as I loved sports in middle school and high school (played all three major sports), and followed college and pro sports like crazy then, my decision for education was based solely upon what I wanted to do as an adult. Of course, I knew what I wanted to do when I was 18. Lots of 18 year old teens don't have their future career set clearly in their mind so I get the "sports" mind set. I'd like to think that today's parents are really focused on educating their teens about the complexities of life, expenses, career changes, and how it is smart to be diversified in their skill sets as they learn and grow to be able to overcome set backs as they happen.
