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. 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 . In 2012, another homeschool student was a Heisman Trophy finalist: Collin Klein of Kansas State University.
