Good decision by Cunningham

Kosmo mentioned this a couple of times on his blog last week, but he wanted to further discuss the decision made by Troy senior soccer player Sean Cunningham to stay in Michigan and play his senior year of high school. Cunningham had been offered to play professionally for a team in Germany starting this year, which meant he would've finished high school over there while playing soccer.
The K-Man applauds Cunningham for this decision, even though it couldn't have been the easiest thing in the world to postpone a professional offer.
You only get one senior year in high school, and Cunningham would've sacrificed so much had he decided to leave.
A chance to play with friends, football games, prom, and most importantly, graduating from the home high school.
All that would've been negated, and if he would've played over there and gotten hurt or something this year, he might not have had as much to fall back on.
More offers to play professionally should easily come in the future for a player as great as Cunningham is, so it was wise to postpone it so he can enjoy all the fun of being a senior in high school.
- Even though a majority of the football games are taking place this Thursday around the state due to the Labor Day holiday, the Week 2 ledger within Oakland County will see the best two games taking place on Friday. Both are in the OAA White, with Farmington traveling to Rochester Adams and Southfield playing at Farmington Hills Harrison.

that is the dumbest thing i ever heard! first of he wouldn't even played with the first team over there , he would have played for the U19. In Mainz he had the chance to develop much faster than here. And he would have played against good soccer players instead of playing against horrible high school teams. And don't talk about how good or valuable a high school degree would be he would have gotten a lot better education over there. Bad decision on his part unless he wants to stay in the united states and wants to play in the MLS.....
