We'll find out about a football scholarship this fall, of course. You're right that if he doesn't get a scholarship then he won't be playing Division I or II football. He probably has a pretty slim chance, in my ignorant estimation, of receiving anything from even a minor DI program like Western Illinois. The kind of school that would really want him is a small division III school like Milliken in Decatur. But DIII schools can't offer athletic scholarships.

I've been planning all along that we (the family we, all of us) would have to carry all or nearly all the load. That's ok as long as we're talking state school. Private schools are a different world, one I had not explored much.

A good private school is roughly triple instate tuition at a good public school.
