Frederick was an advocate of his heritage and taught others to read and write so he could inform them.
Other sports fans do not want to see athletes paid because they say “ it will destroy their notion of amateur athletics.” They stick with the belief that a “free education” is compensation enough for what the athletes provide for the school.
