    Not everyone gets adopted by Sandra Bullock.

    A sad story, but one to which the ending has not been written.

    Good luck kid. It's not worth much, but I'm rooting for you.

    There but for the grace of God......

    One of the problems, as I see it, is that if someone sees this story and wants to help the kid, it's an NCAA recruiting violation. It would take a university coach or AD to offer a scholarship; you can't have a group of average Joes raise money to subsidize tuitin and get him in a JC even.
