They always have a slide of who received sports scholarships. High school is about 3000 students.

2 football players
2 baseball players
1 soccer player
No basketball player
All 6 starting varsity golfers. The oldest female golfer is a sophomore, so none eligible yet.

For a school of that size that doesn't seem like many. I went to an all guys school with about 900 students. I don't remember exact numbers, but I think there were about 20 football scholarships alone plus a few basketball, and a couple for each of baseball, hockey, and wrestling.
For football, it was a given that all first string seniors got a full ride, most to Big 10 schools.

Honestly, our football team sucks. Pretty sure we finished in last in our division. These are mostly gated community kids.

Maybe not mostly, but even the non gated community kids are not hurting.

Good coaching and a history of winning gets the best athletes. Zaph son is a good example a good club soccer player converting to a golfer. If they had an average golf program they would get average golfers.

When I was in high school I ran the track, mostly the mile and 2 mile. One of the schools we competed against was a little school (300 students) that had one of the best x country programs in the country. They would beat 3000 student schools. The best athletes in that school ran cross country and track rather than football and baseball. I didn't run cross country but all of them ran the distant events in track, my goal was not to get lapped

One of the odd things about our high school. No pep rallies for any sports. Principal feels it sends the wrong message to take kids out of academics to celebrate sports.

I think my perspective is a bit skewed as well because of those things. I swam and played water polo. We sucked. However we had and still have one of the most celebrated football programs in the state. Lots of kids ended up in the NFL, including guys like Donovan McNabb and Simeon Rice.

Do other schools do that?  Getting out of class for a pep rally seems strange, that certainly wouldn't have flown at my high school.  I had no idea that some schools did that.

I went to a small, rural high school of 350. I played baseball on a team with 12 guys. 10 got scholarships to play in college. No other athletes in any other sport earned a scholarship.

Mine did.  Once per athletic season.  We went on "assembly schedule" so all the classes were shortened.
