Aram’s take: So sorry, but I think talks like this go on WAY MORE than most people realize. And yes, I’m talking at the high school level. I doubt it’s to this degree and level of detail, though. Football is a dirty, nasty, violent, BEAUTIFUL game played only by true bad asses. A top coach in the area once told me, and you know who you are, “If you’ve got a bunch of 4.0 students on your team, you’re probably not going to be in the playoffs.” The true, harsh reality is that HS football is played a lot of guys who are probably going to go on and do some pretty tough things in their lives. It’s not for choir boys. I don’t think there are too many true bounties in HS football, but I do think players are targeted.
