Will have to ask some of the high school football players if this is still the case.
This was also the case when I played football in junior high and high school. Not so much the case these days.
The local high schools now charge a participation fee of around $300 per season which helps defray some of the schools' costs. The rest is covered by the school budget (ultimately that comes from property taxes). Not a huge sum for most of us here, but it's enough to keep some kids from playing. They do have some fundraisers to help out the less fortunate kids.
