End the speculation. Age verification. I have spoken with several coaches and parents that have verified the left back status of their kids but nothing is done about it. Go to the Yale Fall Bulldog tournament and you will see it on display. Unfortunately it may take a kid getting hurt to change.
This argument has been going on for years in the Long Island and Maryland threads. Bottom line, in high school you play against older kids and in college you play against men. Might as well get used to it now. Makes your son a better player.
Absurd logic. Comparing a 12 year old to an 18 year old. Just stupid.
In high school good freshman play against Seniors. So your looking at 14-15 versus 18-19. And those good freshman were playing against older kids when they were 12 and 13. If you want to play at a high level that is what happens. I agree embrace playing up and you will be a better player.
