Aeneas Hawkins is a bright high school student with prospects of attending college on an athletic scholarship.

Aeneas received scholarship offers from Alabama, Clemson, Florida State, Georgia, and Ohio State, and many others.

His decision to pick the best overall school should be simple. But it’s not. That’s because Aeneas was unfortunate enough to be raised in a football family.

His father, Artrell Hawkins, would proudly like him to go to his alma mater, the University of Cincinnati.  Artrell Hawkins played in the NFL career with the Bengals, Panthers, and Patriots.

His uncle, Andrew Hawkins, wants him to go to his alma mater, the University of Toledo. Andrew Hawkins played six seasons in the NFL and the Canadian Football League.

Another uncle, Wayne Jones, doesn’t want him to agree to any other school than the University of Pittsburgh. While his other uncle, Wallace Gilberry, is rooting for him to go to Alabama.

Cincinnati, Toledo, Pittsburgh and Alabama are great schools. But there’s also Penn State, Ohio State, Clemson, and Notre Dame.  Aeneas is caught between wanting to please his family, and wanting to follow his heart.

Fortunately (or unfortunately) Gary Owen is with him to help put his mind at ease.
