Absolutely Required Reading on Gary Gray

There's a lengthy article today in the hometown newspaper of Irish recruit Gary Gray that is completely and utterly mandatory reading. It kind of needs to be seen in its entirity to get the full context, so I shall refrain from blockquoting it here.

All in all, there's a lot to be learned about the high-stakes world of high school athletes and their recruitment, the tangible effect that psychopaths on Internet message boards can have on recruiting, and the triumph of a high school kid from humble roots to overcome outrageous pressure and follow his heart. No matter what happens with Gray's football career under the dome, I for one will always be a big fan of his.

I hope Gary goes far. He's a principled, mature kid and he deserves the best.

It would be nice if he makes the NFL and earns the big paycheck. Regardless, I hope he gets a ND degree along the way, and hats off to his mom for the guidance she gave him.
