Pursuing an athletic scholarship is supposed to KEEP money in your family's bank account, not deplete your account.

However, many families spend a huge amount of money pursuing the scholarship dream for the athlete(s).  In fact, in too many cases, they spend a ton of money and have nothing to show for it in the end.
