Berrios is about more than football (high school OT)
When you’re one of the top football prospects in the country you get a lot of attention from a lot of different people. Your phone doesn’t stop ringing, people constantly tweet and re-tweet you and almost every college coach in the country wants to see you in their uniform.
That’s the life of Leesville Road’s Braxton Berrios, but that is only part of his story.
“I’ve been playing football since I moved to Raleigh. I think I was seven when I started,” said Berrios.
That decision to play football has led Berrios to another big decision, in the next few months Berrios will have to decide which one of the dozens of college offers he will accept.
Players should always keep their noses out of trouble. But given the recruiting climate and the mathematical reality for the Ohio State, Buckeye football players should have an additional incentive to avoid breaking any team rules this coming fall – and the 8 months that follow.
In my Clark Kent/day job career (Recruiting and HR), I've often been the guy that gets called when somebody gets in trouble with the rules. While we may have exhaustively tried to spell out procedures and bylaws for how to deal with specific infractions, in reality, how certain individuals are punished depends a lot on the person, their job, and how replaceable they are.
Obviously, there are some infractions that are so serious that dismissal is really the only possible recourse. It doesn't matter if you're a mail room plebeian or a high level software developer, if you're say, looking at porn at work, or show up to the office carrying 2 pounds of meth, we have to fire you.
