VA Medical Center--Columbus, OH

High school from the little league,
Citizens will always be intrigued.
Scholarship plays win games.
The fans will remember your name, 
But the coaches' dream is to usurp it all,
A title for the team before the dean calls.
Now it’s time to choose an All-American on the spot.
The NFL’s offer is hot,
Guaranteed for five years,
A top draft of the first round.
The college will shed tears
Because the star has left town.
Protecting the quarterback as you’ve done 
For life. This is part of the contract for kids
And the wife. Sixteen weeks out in the field,
Earning your family a cool mill. Life couldn’t 
Get better than this. Football will never be missed.
