Prep Sports Report

Would you send your kid to a football prep school?



That's a question that popped into my head after today's announcement that IMG Academy in Bradenton will field a high school football team in the 2013-14 school year.

The football training will obviously be top-notch, even if it's still unclear who IMG will play during the season. The off-field stuff will be different from the traditional high school experience. Not sure what kind of a prom IMG will throw, for instance. Seems like a trade-off, to me.

So, parents and coaches, would you want one of your kids to go to school at a football prep school? And, players, which experience would you prefer?
