I played at UMass Lowell which is NCAA division 2, but the athletic director finally got his wish and folded the program. It was in my home city and it is one of the better Criminal Justice universities. I had a feeling someday that they would fold the program, but they just built a brand new football stadium, and the coach used one of his 6 education waivers on me, my high school resume wasn't going to get me into many schools. They don't offer scholarship money Northeast 10 conference rules, but the coach played with my financial aid package so i got free books, and actually i received afor $3000 after each semester.
I had a few d1AA offers for Univ. of Albany, and i could have walked on @ UMass Amherst which is also D1AA after they cut the program which is usually one of the best D1AA football programs in the country. One of my teammates made it to the NFL, and he would have never got there if he stayed at UMass Lowell, so he's the only one who benefitted from the team folding. I declined, i like UMass Lowell too much. Thats when i joined semipro football league and have played that for 4 years. Oh by the way i play on the defensive line, and sometimes offensive guard, but my college position was fullback.
