“Sam: Here is another success story for you. My grandson Chris just finished freshman year at D-II West Virginia Wesleyan. His GPA was 3.0. Chris started as the 6th string QB and worked his way up to the scout team QB while red-shirting. After the spring game he is now the #2 QB with 4 years of eligibility. He had a terrific spring game. Without your help he would not have been there. Thanks again.”
