Anybody else see this story http://sports.espn.go.com/ncaa/recruiting/football/news/story?id=6021570 on Hillard and his work to improve his academics. Props to him, his mom and the school.
When he started high school he basically could not read. He went to a third grade class to use a new computer program and learn to read and improved dramatically in a matter of months. Nice to know that he had the guts to do something that was probably pretty humiliating - and that the school was wililng to work with him, but still held him accountable.
