Missed this last week from the L.A. Times:
IMG Academy, located in Bradenton, Fla., will field its first high school football team beginning in the spring of 2013.
Former Heisman Trophy winner Chris Weinke will be the head coach.
Christopher Walsh covers Alabama football for BamaOnline, 247Sports, and is the author of 18 books.
Sorry to be dumb but is IMG a football academy? Like a prep school for football?
Is this where Tim Tebow go to school?

Been to a couple soccer tournaments at the Soccer Academy in Bradenton. When I played (early 2000's) basically the u-16 thru u-18/19 National teams played and trained at the Academy. If you made the national team, then you moved to Bradenton. Had one player on my team make the National Pool and spent the whole summer down there training. Seems like a Football academy would have to work completely different or that would be way unfair.
If I'm not mistaken, IMG also has an incredible golf program.
That is where the David Lebetter golf school is. It costs around $40,000 per year to go there.
