Exploitation of Football Players Doesn’t Start in College

From ESPN’s Outside the Lines comes the story of gambling on youth football in Florida, and the recruitment and sale(!) by parents of their children from one team to another for sums like $3,500.

Note the one kid saying almost verbatim what the Fab Five were saying in their recent 30-for-30 documentary: “I’m not seeing any of the money.”

Some of the children featured are as young as 6-years old.
