It just sort of made me think students certainly need to have that backup, a plan B if you will ...just in case they don't get the chance to play.
For college athletes who just love to play a sport, Div III is their best chance since everybody is a "walk on" ... and sometimes, it's also way to success. NFL Pro Bowler London Fletcher-Baker, LB for the Washington Redskins, is a Div III player from John Carroll University in suburban Cleveland, Ohio. Another Div III player is Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson, from Coe College in Iowa.

For sure and we'd no doubt agree that Div III is THE way to go if a student is athletic and would like to play in college. heheh Div II isn't too bad either. But Div I.....well really to take one from Kellogg's Tony the Tiger, Div I players...well ..'they're G-R-E-A-T!!!!!!!!! Many are called, few are chosen for Div I, eh????....And you know there's a pecking order in Div 1 too..some guys get splints from the plank, you know?..;-)...........
