Local Yokel commented on Cougars prove they belong

I put "scholarships" for a reason, I didn't mean it literally. They find a kid that they want to play football for them. The school talks to the family and asks if they can afford it. The family says no, and the school provides financial assistance which results in very little/no cost to …
