Why would someone who has gone through college/university quit a potentially stable career path to play a video game professionally. And they probably wouldnt have had the time to play as much as they could have to be as good as they are.

Professional Gamer = Unstable, but they're in High School, so if it falls through who cares? Once you're old enough that you don't have your parents to fall back on you need something reliable.

A job and a career are different.

And I am having difficulty seeing the relevance of your response to the comment Cascayde posted.

Because most peoples' reflexes and reaction ability are at their peak during their late teen years. I saw that on some Korean StarCraft documentary a few years ago when they were studying exactly what your question is asking. So people in that age range just naturally have an advantage.
