Homeschool athletics

In 1994, Jason Taylor was a homeschool footy player in Pennsylvania who engaged a legal battle against the National Collegiate Athletic Association (N.C.A.A., the leading oversight association governing U.S. collegiate athletics) & its classification of homeschool athletes as fundamentally high school drop-outs. Taylor's legal victory has provided a precedent for thousands of other homeschool athletes to compete in colleges & attain the same opportunities in schooling & professional development that other athletes enjoy.[citation needed] Other homeschool students who have risen to the top of collegiate competition include N.C.A.A. 2005 champion tennis player, Chris Lam, Kevin Johnson of the University of Tulsa basketball team, 2010-2011 Sizable South Player of the Year Jesse Sanders of the Liberty University Flames & the 2007 Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow from the University of Florida .[citation needed] In 2012, another homeschool student was a Heisman Trophy finalist: Collin Klein of Kansas State University.
