The NFL has had its share of players who have broken the law. Some have served jail time for murder, domestic abuse, using and selling drugs.
College football has similar problems. Four Notre Dame football players face expulsion from the program and the school for academic cheating.
I am writing in regard to the recent e-mail that I received from Mary Ann Sparks, director of Human Resources for Wilson County Schools, regarding the new pay scale that will be implemented for the 2014-2015 school year.
