Well tonight i had a football game, i play on the junior varsity squad. Not to brag, or be cocky, but i had the best game of my life(im a Fullback and D End). well, the head coach of the varsity wants to talk to my dad tommorow, and word is that i might be playing on varsity. well this puts me in a bad spot, as in if i go to Varsity, i piss off all my friends on the JV squad, if i stay on JV, i'll piss off the head varsity coach.

how do i know that my friends will get mad? well i left the freshman team last year, and none of them talked to me for a good bit.

also, i dont think im ready for varsity, im not big,fast, or agresive enough, imho, but i dunno.

opinions on the subject?

EDIT: forgot to say, im a sophmore!

You should get as much experience as you can before moving up. It doesn't matter who gets pissed, it was your choice to play, and if you have a choice, then it's yours who to play with.

talk to your coach about it and talk to you friends about it.

this is about 4 posts and no mention of fap rape or anything.....wow.

This. Talk to your coach and tell him if and why you think you're not ready. See what he has to say.

i'd do it. if they're decent friends, they'd be very supportive. I also play jv (basketball, not football), and I know for a fact if I was moved up, everyone would be extremely happy for me.
#11
what?? why wouldnt you want to be in varsity, to get better you need to play with more skilled opponents, and your friends should support you
#12
I'd do it. If you get varsity experience no you'll be ahead of the game when the majority of your class moves up. They might be pissed now, but in a year or two, they'll be looking up to you a lil'

If you feel that you are ready for Varsity (you were expressing some concern about that in your post), then you should do it. If you feel that you are not quite ready and should spend another year in JV, do it.

Dude go to Varsity that's what it's all about. Plus I don't think you can really say no because on my team it was if the coach told you to do something you do it. You wanna be on your coaches good side too.

who cares what your friends think.

just go for it and do what you want to do. if they don't accept it, in the words of that mayhem guy, "if they don't like it, **** THEM! that's why we are here!"

Going up to varsity can do nothing but make you better. The coach obviously feels you're ready to move up because you've played well and you should. You may not start right away but your skills will progress quickly and you'll be up there soon. Plus you'll have a jump on varsity for next year.

Friends that get mad at you for doing your best aren't good friends. It's not like you won't see them at school anymore.

the longer you are on varsity the better you will be come your senior year. if your friends get pissed for you bettering yourself then they're not that good of friends anyway. if i where you id go varsity, they're not gonna throw you to the dogs before your ready. and youll be better off for it, if you go. like i said come your senior year, youll have that extra training than the rest of the team, cause if your school is anything like mine then the varsity team works out a lot more than jv. plus aggression is not something you can be trained at, if your not aggressive enough now you probably never will be unless something dramatic happens

This.

Besides, your proabably are a lot more capable than you think you are. Everyone is like that. You think you can't do it, but you get in there, you do what your supposed to do and things start going your way.

My freshman year, I tried out for our varsity hockey team. Some one got injuried on day one. After a week of practice, the coach told me that I was on the first line with our two senior captains. BIG SHOCKER. I went in. Did what I was taugh and I was able to compete.

Next season, I was very excited. I was coming back from a big year. Ironicly suffered a season ending injury on the first day of practice. Was never the same again and played a much smaller role my junior and senior years.

seriously, play varsity.

that's the main goal in high school is to play on the varsity squad.

not to mention i've been in your position.

head coach asked me to play, i turned em down (bad decision)

but i still suited up for the varsity games just incase.


turns out the guy that i back up got injured, and i got to actually get on the field on a friday night.

It was the best thing ever. You get so much more pumped up on friday nights.

go for it seriously. i wish i woulda played the whole season like coach asked.

plus, more experience for your next two years.


you asked for a serious answer.. :P

You owe your loyalty to your school and your coach, not your squad. Neither aspire to move to Varsity, nor resist it. Your friends will support you however this turns out. If not, they aren't friends.

Your coach will tell you if you're ready or not. He has more experience in these matters than you do. Trust him. It would be easier to stay on JV. But easier doesn't mean better. You'll have to work harder to keep up, but your skills will grow faster.
