three inches, roads fine. I think they were worried about power failure again based on heavy snow on all the limbs then having to scramble to get the kids home... Lost day. stinks.

You're an stunad. I had a long talk with my coach about the fact that I didn't want my son to play Varsity as a 9th grader, and actually set my son's expectations to not be upset if he didn't make it. The coach agreed to not pull my son up if he wouldn't be able to contribute, and we both agreed that another year of JV would be good.

My son worked his but off, hit the gym 5 days a week, worked with the older starters and earned his way up. The coach said that he will play, although there is no guarantee, and the team needs him and his ability. So don't be bitter and take away what many of these young men have earned. I applaud any 8th and 9th grader who worked their way onto the varsity team this year.


Nice story, now tell the real one, not this nonsense

If you have a both an 8th and 9th grade playing varsity, I have to ask, "what school your kids are in?". West Hempstead??!

Other than possibly an academic or disciplinary matter there is NO REASON for parents to be speaking with high school coaches.

How old is Tehoke Nanticoke who played at IMG Last year. The only thing I saw was that he was 20 last year. Take out all the PGs, pre-firsts, re-classes and the real HS Rankings are;

Darien (Conn.)
Victor (N.Y.)
Chaminade (N.Y.) (does have some Re-classes)
Ward Melville (N.Y.)
St. Anthony’s (N.Y.)
Massapequa (N.Y.)
Delbarton (N.J.)
Torrey Pines (Calif.)
Conestoga (Pa.)

Tehoka Nantikoke will be 22 before he finishes his Freshman year of college, but fun to watch.

Generally I agree that parents do not need to engage a coaches for other reasons than academic or disciplinary reasons. That said, if your son is serious about playing in college and is not an All-American or All-County then he will need some help and guidance from his parents in navigating the do's and don'ts as it relates to getting exposure to college coaches. It seems appropriate, if your son is on that path, to engage the coach since it is the proactive player (with help from parents) that will differentiate him from another player of equal caliber. Any disagreement here?
