Five Easiest And Well Paid Jobs In Sports
When I lived in the suburbs outside of Philadelphia a neighbor of mine grew up with a kid whose father pushed him from a young age to practice being a long snapper in football. He was hoping he would get a college scholarship by simply being a long snapper. Not a hard job and something you are not going to be hurt playing.
Apparently, if you can make it to the pro’s it also pays very well.
