Casa catcher Christy keeping priorities in order

Last summer these were the two options the University of Oregon gave Francis Christy of Casa Grande.

It was a choice a teenager should not have to make.

Francis, we are offering you a scholarship to play baseball for Oregon. If you bypass your spring classes at Casa, get your GED, enter Oregon in January, in time to play for the Ducks that spring, we will give you a 100 percent scholarship.

If, however, you decide to stay in high school through graduation and enter Oregon in the fall, you will receive a 75 percent ride.

The financial comparison: $35,000 represents a full ride, $26,250 if you wait.
