i think that you should address your concern to your dad while you still have the time..tell him how you really feel about not studying in the university and pursuing a professional career at football..after all it's your future that you are preparing for..you just need to point out to your parents how important this matter is to you and that you wish they would understand and respect you opinions and decisions about this...just make sure to talk to them seriously and calmly.talk to them with respect so that they'll understand you more.. so good luck in your future endeavors!!hope you choose what's really best for you and your parents.. god bless and good day!

That's what they dun allow me to. People in the east is different from people from the west! In the east parents want full control over their children with the reason they give birth to us, they brought us up. In ancient it is worst, parents even take control over children's marridge.

Do both go to a school with a football team. Play football while getting your education. Lets be realistic you may be a good ball player but what will happen if you get hurt? You need some way to earn a living after football. You can always use your education you cannot always play football. Look at all the almost famous football players. The ones who got seriously hurt the first season, who truned down a football scolership they then had to work for minum wage or pay for college themselves. I think you should follow your fathers advise.
