NFL stands for 'not-for-long'

Amongst us football fans, there is a ten year old boy that volunteers for Scout,com, and he knows more about the game than most Americans. This young boy, on his own initiative, started calling recruits to interview them. <br><br> Below are excepts from recent conversations he had with Jonathan Stewart and Ndamukong Suh. Additionally, our young man's Dad, who proctored the interviews, adds some comments of his own based on what he heard.

BF.com comments:  Jonathan sounds very focused on his religion, school and football--in that order. The Ducks will greatly benefit from this
terrific young man, as I believe he will provide a positive role model to a sport riddled with young men that do not seem to be making good choices.
