I watched the game film and the 8 they reported he had a few minutes into the 2nd quarter. Pretty low.

To give you an example. last year the scorekeeper didn't record 4 goals and 5 assists my son had. We said nothing. This year he was already not given credit for a goal in the first game. We didn't say anything last year but my son did say something to the coach. Ironically enough, a college coach who is interested in my son emailed him on his great game he had yesterday because of the stats he saw online.

With this mindset, stat guys...how do defensemen get recruited?

Really, do you see stats for college teams. they record ground balls and forced turnovers. those are all stats that colleges keep. Trust me they want to know how many turnovers you caused and how many ground balls you picked up.

Exactly, thats my point...if hs's don't keep those stats, how do they know which def are any good...you can tell by the stats who the best off kids are.
