He throws away those kids like garbage and moves on to the next. 5-6 kids tops go to what you would call top elite schools. The rest fight for spots on their own at a D3 school. More than 60% if they are still playing are at D3 schools. If the didnt play for fl$ or EXPRESS Orange they are on their own. How many are going to Harvard next year ?? Or any other top tier team ? Not counting those who are taking a detour either which is becoming the norm at GC

Do you know that some of the best academic schools are D3. Colleges especially the top D1 and even D3 schools don't take the 2nd and 3rd tier players. A coach can only do so much. Do you know that the coach does what he can to place players. It's up to the players to have the grades and skill to get into the elite school. Is he supposed to do their homework and make them do wallball. No that's your job. So now because your kid isn't good enough or you think he is good but no schools take him it's the coaches fault. You again are a coaches nightmare. Just because you are from Garden City doesn't automatically guarantee your kid is going to a top D1 school.

Honestly, if you're a moderator you should be keeping your opinion out of the discussion. A "moderator" should be a neutral party with no say, just an observer. Perhaps you are too close to the situation and you should recuse yourself? You certainly shouldn't be insulting a kid, your last line above was completely unnecessary.
