Because he felt his public high school has better academic options at the higher levels than most of the private schools. So far so good on that front - although the pandemic made me question the decision somewhat when the private schools started going back in person.

Oh and after playing with and against them for so many years, he thinks that too many of the private school kids are [insert word that the forum mods won't allow], so he preferred to stay with the friends he's known since kindergarten.

So yes, he did turn down all the efforts to recruit him to play in the MIAA. I know that the "Glory Days" Spalding dads find that hard to understand. :shrug:

Serious Question,,,Will you ever get over your son getting cut or not invited to play at Spalding ? It is not like there are not other programs for him.


LOL. I could care less about Spalding. I just find it funny how riled up the Spalding dad's get.

And to the extent it matters, my son turned down recruiting efforts from three MIAA A Division schools. He's happy and doing great at his public school. :shrug:

Probably so he wouldn't have to go to school with a bunch of George Hughleys.

Well a great time to be a B goalie getting a D1 offer is during a pandemic when coaches can’t see you. He probably had a 70% save percentage playing against a bunch of soccer players playing a sport in the spring. In the A maybe he goes D3 or nowhere at all because the competition is so much better

Not in this case. Severn dad again. That goalie had 30 saves against us. My son was a senior and he said it was the best game he had ever seen a goalie have and he has played with and against a bunch of D1 goalies . I doubt he gets 30 saves every game but a year ago he was phenomenal. Several of our parents and players knew him and said he is a very nice young man and has always been good. Our goalie, a D1 freshman now, was lights out too that game but this young man was on

Friends also had a 2019 goalie who moved to Gilman his senior year go D1, Glenelg has a couple 22’s that will be D1. Curley had at least one 2020 who could was being recruited for D1 lax but chose D1 football

They are a private school, paying higher tuition, doing 100% virtual learning, big reason why they transferred out!

You're so above it all, yet here you are stalking posts and then posting complete nonsense about your snowflake turning down MIAA programs because he couldn't possibly tear away from his daily public bro-mance?

I think the reality was Junior didn't want to get his mettle tested in the fast lane and the icing for you was not having to figure out how to come up with tuition.

Great job setting the bar high for him lost!!!

It the kid is a top student and lives in an area where the public schools are safe and don’t force liberal bologna down the kids throat, then going public (better access to higher education) is the proper choice, plus being a big fish in a small pond isn’t necessarily bad. Top students don’t need to rely on lax for some college tuition, they will get academic scholarships

Anyone watch? Scores?
