A Fernly, Nevada high school football player called a press conference and announced during an all school assembly that he was signing a scholarship and letter of intent to go to Cal...   How did his coach NOT know this was a fraud??  Unbelievable....  there are also reports of fake letters going out to kids when there is no offer... crazy things happening since television has decided to televise national signing day!!!  I kid you not!
