2 How to Learn More And Reply to this Article... Most college athletes get scholarships of about $25,000 a year, so its not like they're not getting anything in return for playing sports there. Also people go to college to learn and get an education, not necessarily to play sports. If they get paid to play, then when they are trying to decide which school to go to they won’t be looking at how good the school is, just how much they will be getting paid. The students should be thinking more about education and less about getting paid. POWER WORD!

CBSSports.com surveyed 100 college coaches on whether or not college athletes should be paid. 58% said yes they should, and 42% said no they shouldn’t. Some had ideas for an end of semester stipend. Here are some notable anonymous quotes from coaches: No, they get scholarships, crazy amounts of free gear and they are glorified enough as it is. If they get paid to play they will have more power than they already do. No, no one is forcing them to play. And most schools can’t afford to pay everyone in division 1 sports. Yes, they should make a few thousand a semester. They make their schools a lot of money and they should see some of it. POWER WORDS! Stipend: a small payment Scholarship: you play a sport and in return the school pays for your college Glorified: you are adored and looked up to
