This 148-Word Paper Reportedly Earned A UNC Athlete An A-


According to Mary Willingham, a learning specialist who used to work for UNC's Academic Support Program for Student-Athletes, this is a paper submitted by a player that went on to receive an A-.

“This is not even close to college work yet this athlete was awarded an A-minus,” Willingham said in an interview with ESPN.

“That was an easy paper class, you know you could chill, get help writing it, you would get an easy B,”  said Duenta Williams, who played on UNC's football team from 2007-2010.

“I feel let down and disappointed that something like this could take place. I feel angry at myself for allowing it, for having these blinders on.”
