So I'm fascinated with this scenario:
People this time of year keep talking about the option of transferring schools when their kid gets cut from the HS team "unjustly", so that they can rescue the boy's self-esteem and "love of the game."
My question: Does anybody have a story of being on a team actually taking somebody up on this? How does it work? I have an image of a brand-new roster full of kids who just earned their way onto a team, getting introduced to the new kid who was just cut from the team across town. Surely no self-respecting HS coach would start his season off that way.
And then how does the coach, who just cut a number of his own kids and has his own frustrated parents, explain to them where this phenom came from that is better than the ones he didn't take(But got cut from some other school.)?
