So for all these reasons, no reason to get your nose out of joint if your D1 prospect Sophomore kid is playing with his buddies on JV and they move up the son of the asst coach, his buddy, and the son of the booster club president? Or am I wrong about that?
With the diversity of posters here you will hear every possible thing that could happen. In the big picture it doesn’t happen that often. Some of the time the accusation it’s an excuse why a parent’s kid isn’t on varsity. The “favored” is actually a player.
Our rival high school coach was accused of favoritism with both kids. They both became D1 players. The one thing parents sometimes overlook is the coach knows what his kids can do. Another potential JV call up may be a mystery gamble to him.
The best advice is practice hard and be too good to not be on varsity. It’s usually the parents of marginal kids you hear whining about favortism.
