The kid is living his dream. Maybe even some of yours. Most people who love what they do don't need much to get by until their priorities start to change. IF he progresses athletically, better pay will come along. As it is, he's earning what he is getting. He's also studying to be a doctor so I don't think he's too worried about money at this young point of his life. When he's rolling in the dough helping people live better lives someday, he won't have any regrets. But I bet many of you still will while you are trying to bring others down. Get a life people.
