ya, this can be a sad story. I grew up in a small town playing hockey. I knew quite a few teachers who were pretty easy on some students who played hockey. They knew how serious the kids were about hockey and were willing to give them some easy make up assignments ect. Reality is many of the kids never truly earned a high school diploma. I am sure this happens in all sports and probably is particularly bad in small towns.
