Senioritis

It has always bothered me when seniors play a sport for 3 years and when their final year comes up, they do not come out. The usual excuse is that “I have to get a job to earn money for college.” I could buy this excuse if there were jobs that in 2 months would allow you to earn enough money to make a dent in their college expenses. The real reason is usually that they get lazy and just want to loaf a while before they have to get serious and go to college. It has nothing to do with making money for college. Most of them work to pay for gas for their car or to have beer money. If they have played something for 3 years and were still on the reserve squad as a junior, I can see their point; however, that is not usually the case. I had one young man come to me one spring and give me that story. I usually was able to keep my cool, but this time I looked at him and said “I could buy this story if you hadn’t driven out here in a new car to tell me this.” A lot of times it also results from an underclassman pushing them to the limit or passing them–and they do not want to be second best. What they can’t see is that with both of them participating, the team would be much better. I doubt if my writing this blog will make any difference, but I did get it off my chest. What I wish they could see is that in 10 years or so they will realize how much fun they missed, and those few bucks they might have made were spent on foolishness anyway.
