In light of the seemingly annual discussions concerning them, does anyone know if coaches do any sort of outreach to kids in junior high? Let them know how important grades are if they even remotely entertain aspirations of college athletics. I don't know if it would help the kids and it certainly isn't the coach's responsibility but maybe it's worth a shot? Thoughts?
Would something like that be considered illegal contact? Personally I wouldn't view it as such unless it was targeted, which eventually it probably would be but I don't know.
