Okay, I have played both football and music since I was 8. I am now 15, and I find that they are increasingly conflicting with each other. I love both very much, both are a huge part of my life, but I see myself being a musician when I grow up, and that's what I want to do with my life.

I want to keep playing football, but thanks to my lovely coaches, it has to be at the top of my list, and music is to take backseat to it.

What do I do Pit?

Do what you enjoy or want to do more and don't be afraid to quit something so that you can do something that you enjoy more. It's a hard choice but in the end it's up to you.

Do a barrel roll

Well just practice more intensely with your music? I'm sure there's a golden midway somewhere in there....

tell coaches what they want to hear...do whatever you want when the coach turns his back.

manipulation ftw!

if you haven't been scouted for a sports team/club by 15, you'll have a lot to do to catch up so music sounds like a better option.

I'm sure there's a happy medium somewhere in the middle of the two, I am just having trouble finding it.

Quit your current team and join one that's more relaxed, then put music first. Simple.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.

there are 2 ways to consider this:

1)you have the rest of your life to play music, but maybe not the rest of your life to play fooltball

2)music is your passion and you want pursue it for to better yourself for the future

Do both, then you can do a half-time show in full gear.

.. That'd be badass.

It's all part of the service.

Seriously - someone who only plays football or only plays guitar is a very dull person.

I had a similar experience in the spring. I've been sailing seriously for four or five years, but felt like I had lost touch with a lot of the people I had became such great friends with through the sport. It became a really bittersweet thing for me and I decided I would much rather be writing things and playing music. However, I got through the rough, kept going with it and now I'm happy doing all of it. Chin up, it'll all work out for the better.

I don't really understand you, unless they have said you can't play music if you're on the football team, how did they put music behind football?

If it's practice times, deal with it they want you to be the best team kind of like you with music.

If it's offseason training, again, deal with it. Manage your time right. I get up and work out and run at around 9, not saying it's early but I'm done around noon and I have the rest of the day.

I was kidding. I agree. But his team might be more serious about it than him. He could do both more casually.
