    I quit my team this year.

    In fact, I got quite a few guys behind me as well. Our team has always been horrible, mostly because of the coaching. We've had a losing record since about fifth grade, and they think these two kids on the team are god, so they just rely on them, and all they rely on is themselves. So I decided not to try out this year and I got 4 guys to back me up [we were all shoo-ins].

    Anyway, we're all playing rec ball and its so much better. We've still got competition, because we're all playing each other, but most importantly, its FUN.

    I'm not really quite sure why I'm into Basketball. I don't usually go for team sports because I don't like relying on anyone but myself. I've been let down too many times. Basketball has just always clicked with me, though. Been a passion of mine ever since I was a little leve.

    Haha, I know, I know. I'm 6'1 and likely still growing. But my team has played some of the best sophomore teams in our state and we beat all of them. But, I know, it's different when you get up there. Stronger guys, taller guys, bigger stage, more pressure. It's different.

    @Leve- Yeah, one out of every 3 or 4 classes in Pella that happens too. There's always a grade that just gets screwed over. (Or at least screwed over by the underclassmen)

    Yeah, I'm the 4th tallest starter on my team I think. We've got two 6'4 posts, a 6'2 shooting guard and another 6'0 guard. We're a primarily Dutch town so.. that's why we're all so tall. (Even though I'm 100% German)

    I forgot a major part of it

    We've got three huge guys that have always been bumped up. In gradeschool, we were taught to rely on them because they had such an edge. They took them away in JH/HS and thats when those two garbage kids tried to become leaders. Stupid system screwed us xD

    EDIT: 6 foot shooting guard.

    Our coaches are majorily against bumping people up. They feel as if people get big headed and don't work harder to get better. (I know at least one case where this held true a few years back) I think 3-5 of the guys on our Freshman team were good enough to go to the next level, but they decided not to. (And our current team does have an outside chance of making the state tournament)

    And I hate kids that think they are leaders but the whole rest of the team knows they aren't and they just don't like them in that role.

    Won my game yesterday. Only played 16 minutes because we got up 25 early and last time we beat this team by 50 and my coach didn't want to rub it in.

    Anyway, 12 points, 8 assists, 5 steals, 4 turnovers (Not too good), 6 rebounds (Pretty cocky about this)
