Our partner, PHIT America.org is on a crusade to get Americans active, healthy and fit. In that vein, they are furious with the new trend of colleges offering athletic scholarships for online gaming.
“It’s unacceptable to classify video gaming as an athletic activity,” says Jim Baugh, Founder of PHIT America. “It’s disrespectful to the millions of student-athletes who wrestle, swim, ride bikes, play team sports, or run. Those students are real athletes. You don’t sweat on the Internet. Awarding athletic scholarships for video gaming is just wrong.”
