You can find anything from google searches, so I thought I would give you random questions from high school football players around the country. I don’t know where or when this kid wrote this, but I’m sure it applies to HS football players everywhere. If you’re a player in the Valley and have a question that you would like our bloggers to discuss, you can email me anonymously and I will post it for you. Send to firstname.lastname@example.org….Anyway, here’s today’s question/dilema
HS player writes: I’m an incoming sophomore getting ready for summer ball, season, etc. This is my 2nd year of football, and i didn’t start as a freshmen. Coach is already favoring his starters in spring ball. When we do 7 on 7 he gets the linebackers (my position) that don’t know what to do mentally. I know everything I must do mentally, and physically, I’m real fast and pretty strong. Football isn’t fun to me at all. It’s all just hard hard work just to…well.. be someones backup. I’m not content with being a backup. (to continue click thread).
If I’m gonna work hard all summer, then I want something out of it and being a backup doesn’t get it. I’m a backup to guys who have been playing for almost 10 years. Next year there’s no way I’m starting over Seniors on varsity, and when I’m a senior, then the starters from freshmen and JV are gonna be starters as seniors.
I make movies. I’m GOOD at it too. Never EVER in my life have I been good at something like I am movies. Never. Football, no. Basketball, no. Track, no. etc etc. but in video class, I’m #1. It’s the one thing I am truly good at. I wanna pursue it, but football is year round. 24/7. all I have to think about. I wanna quit. But it’s like a gang. You can’t just leave. Plus, I don’t want my friends I made in football to think less of me, it’s just not fun anymore. I’d much rather be making movies, getting better at something i truly am good at, and will do later in life, instead of wasting 4 years on something I’m not gonna do after it’s done. You know? Please help!
