Professionals get paid to put their bodies on the line for the team they are playing for, why shouldnt it be the same for college athletes? It is true, collegiate athletes are considered extremely lucky because they are gifted with a multitude of scholarship opportunities to play for that school and are given the right amount of exposure to succeed and take their talents to the next level whether in sports or elsewhere.

People across the country, including myself, believe that college athletes should be paid (excluding school transactions such as tuition, etc.).

College sports wouldnt be as big as it is without the athleter’s great performances, and itr’s not fair that these hard-working players dont get to benefit from the money they are generating. The NCAA puts a college playerr’s name on jerseys and tons of other apparel and none of that money is ever even seen by the player. Student athletes should be able to receive a percentage of revenue generated on their account and also be able to sign business deals and engage in endorsement opportunities.
