Jonathan Singh speaks about student-athletes
Some people think that college athletes should be paid. Why? Playing a sport at the collegiate level is not a right it is a privilege. It is a privilege to be an athlete in the NCAA.

If you want money as an athlete you can easier gain it through scholarships. Meal plans, books, the courses they pay for. Its all there for you, they might not give you a free ride but they will give you some money if you are in division one or division two, division three does not get scholarships. 

If you’re a student-athlete your getting free gear, shirts, shoes, socks, jackets, you will never be to cold and you will never be to hot. 

Collegiate athletes need to realize that what they are doing is for the love of the game. If they want to get paid they should simply work their tails off work even harder to make it to the big leagues even to the Olympics. That is why student athletes should not be paid.
