Football CoachWhile many high school and college athletes dream of making it to the major leagues, the chances of that happening are slim for most players. High School Baseball Web reports that 1 in 200 high school baseball players will make it to a major league baseball team.  According to the NFL Players Association, of the 100,000 seniors who play high school football every year, only 215 will make it to the NFL.
