He has tried a few college classes

He has taken some college classes at Salt Lake Community College and he really struggled. In Utah, if a student is on an IEP in HS they can get the same services in state-owned colleges. The services were there but he wouldn't take advantage of them. He is off-the-charts shy and introverted (part of his Aspergers). No way he could balance classes and playing a sport.

What was interesting from a psychological standpoint is that he is extremely introverted but the one place he feels comfortable and "in control" is when he's pitching. It's like an escape from his Aspergers. I would almost cry watching him pitch because he was a different kid. When the game was over and he stepped off the field, he went back into his shell.

He is a great looking guy but I doubt he'll ever get married because he simply can't talk to people, let alone the opposite sex. Now we watch games and I can tell it helps him relax and cope with the stress of his disease. It's like therapy. The only time it doesn't work is when we watch Alabama football and they lose. He's a Bama fan!
