Play well in High School and get good grades. If you do that, colleges will notice your grades and see that you were signed up for whatever sport you play and they'll give you a scholarship. You don't need a sports scholarship to play sports in college anyway
It's is very hard to be on a college team without an athletic scholarship your freshman year. You could become a "walk on" but it's very hard.
1 in 100k get a d1 scholarship
No many players are recruited with little or no scholarship money. Other players also "walk on".
While it is good to be well-rounded for college (especially if you are going in for sports or applying for a sports scholarship), if you play three different sports, it may be hard to keep up with school work and maintain a steady GPA. You will need to learn to balance your schedule between school and sports, and always remember that your education comes first.
If you are good at the sport you play then you have a chance to get an athletic scholarship, if you get the scholarship it means less money out of your pocket or your parents pocket for the books and the classes that you take
College coaches are always recruiting high-school athletes to come play for their college team after they graduate. Several young students are hopeful that they will receive a sports scholarship because it is the only way they can afford to pay for their education. Colleges give away over $1 billion in sports scholarships to worthy student athletes. If you are just going to sit back and hope a college coach comes knocking on your door, you probably will be sitting there for a long time. You may be the best athlete at your school, but you still need to make an effort if you want to receive a sports scholarship. There are thousands of student athletes and not all of them were lucky enough to receive a scholarship.

Jackie Robinson attended Pasadena Junior College. He was a quarterback and safety on the football team and a shortstop on the baseball team. He was also a long jumper on the track team. He later got a scholarship to UCLA and played the most sports by a single person in the schools history

No, Morgan was offered a full scholarship to Duke but decided to play golf professionally rather than go to college and play at the college level.
Yes you can get on a college football team as a walk on through an open try out
yes but you need to maintin 12 credit hours at that university to play. This is just my personal expirience, it may be different in other schools
Playing sports in college can help college athletes get better and expand their skills so they can play sports for money. Like how people play college football and have better chances to play in the CFL, NFL, or European football than someone straight out of high school. Same in all sports.
Lou Gehrig played football and baseball while attending Columbia University. Although he did not graduate, Gehrig went to Columbia on a football scholarship to pursue a degree in engineering.
