A few weeks ago, PBS program Frontline examined the burgeoning business of college athletics. This week the program turns their sights to high school athletics, specifically high school football and players' health. As part of the program, which airs later tonight at 9 PM ET, they also take a look at the marketing of high profile football players and feature Auburn signee Kiehl Frazier. The piece certainly raises a few eyebrows, especially when you consider some of the money parents spend for a few of the services mentioned.
My one question, why do you have to spend the money and market yourself when you're already considered one of the top quarterbacks in the country?
