All American's Relation To Sport Business

In All American, we see the life of a young football player with what is the start of his playing career. Yes, he is just in high school so it may not be a career at the start, but it's the path that can lead an athlete to great things. Because here is where college scouts will start to notice and try to recruit these young players with scholarships. Beyond that, we do see the personal struggles faced by Spencer and the effects that could have on his dreams. They are factors that can affect our games and when scouts are around watching, they're not getting the real picture or capturing the real talent that can be displayed. It's how athletes decide to take on these challenges that change the level they play at from amateur to professional.
