The hijack comment was to TAB, who was getting into "negative" stuff, something I don't see in this thread.
I think all advice and comments have been great!
I liked your comment about seeing it from the coaches side, that's an important point! I am not sure if players know what stuff they have to deal with on a day to day basis.
I remember the first few weeks son was into his freshman season, team was young and NOT doing well. He called us to tell us that he was on a losing team in HS and didn't want to play on a losing team in college maybe he made a wrong choice.
I remind him of that sometimes, he smiles.
