Gambling and high school football

I couldn’t believe it when I saw a tweet from @RivalsHigh about a story he wrote on gambling and high school football.

But yep, here it is. Gambling. On high school football.

I’m not a gambler. I bet a college classmate $5 once on a for-sure victory by Florida State. Was it wide left or wide right? Regardless, it put me off betting for life. I’m just too cheap.

But I get the draw to gambling. I just don’t get betting on high school football games. Um, these are 15, 16, 17-year-olds. Isn’t that just a tad ridiculous?

Feel free to agree or disagree.
