Baker Mayfield isn’t happy with a recent decision made by a high school in Ohio.
The Cleveland Browns quarterback was recently searching Twitter when he came across a post that said Mason High School in Mason, Ohio had plans to do away with valedictorian and salutatorian in an effort to “reduce the overall competitive culture” between students.
The former Oklahoma Sooners Heisman Trophy winner took to Twitter with a strong message against the school’s decision to do away with competition.
“This is so dumb. You’re telling me competition doesn’t bring out the best in people? If you want something bad enough, work for it. People are too soft,” Mayfield said about the school’s decision.
According to a report from WLWT, Mason High School has other plans to adopt the Latin honors system:
Mason High School students with a GPA of 4.00 and above will be designated summa cum laude; students with a GPA between 3.75 and 3.99 will be designated magna cum laude; and students with a GPA between 3.51 to 3.74 will be designated cum laude.
Competition is what got Mayfield where he’s at today, as he walked-on with the Sooners and ultimately ended up as the #1 pick in the NFL Draft.
