Congratulation. If she keeps up this good work, where will she be going to college? Knoxville?

Smile Thank you All for the well-wishes and Prayers!


Johnny, I am trying to help her dreams (she wants to travel), so I am pushing for Academic/Volleryball ride to Hawaii!

I want her to see more of the world, and I am well pleased that she has that ambition Angel

I hope this post doesn't detract from your thread. I'm very happy for you and your daughter. I wish her the best.

I know a bit about how you're feeling. My daughter just graduated from high school this past month. She finished with a 4.0 GPA. She played both volleyball and basketball, 4 year starter/letterman. She was a First Team All State Academic Player as well as a two year First Team All State Athletic Player and was both Region and Team MVP. She lead the state in rebounds (12) and blocked shots (10) averaging 14 plus points per game. She was heavily recruited as a 6'3" basketball center, offered full ride athletic scholarships from 4 different schools and 6 academic scholarships. She will be attending college on a full ride basketball scholarship come the end of August. It's really hard to stop once you start taking about your kids.

Let your daughter know just how important it is and just how much it is worth it to work hard the next 4 years. You and she will both be celebrating when it comes to paying for college. It's a great thing.

My son too was an awesome basketball player, extremely skilled. He was not as highly recruited and ended up taking an academic scholarship. It's kind of amazing because if the truth be known he may have been better amongst his peers than my daughter is amongst hers though she has not tapped full potential just yet. My son worked all through high school as did my older daughter both with the intention of paying for college or at least to help pay. Funny thing is we sent our youngest daughter to every camp available including the club teams which aren't cheap. She never had a job. In the end she will have made far more money towards her college education than my other kids who had good jobs and worked hard. It's all about exposure. I have no doubt had we went the same route with my son he would have played college ball.
