- Pulling an all nighter with school, gym class, and basketball practice tomorrow. HELP!?
- Q: Okay so I was out sick all last week from school so my parents picked my work up from school. The thing is: in stead of doing it I was too busy sleeping and coughing/throwing up, ect. So now tonight I have to do all the work which is going to take a while considering we're in the middle of a major term project so I have to stay up all night to complete it all. Normally staying up all night and going to school the next day doesn't faze me in the slightest but: I have a two period gym class AND basketball practice so I won't get home until 5.... any tips to make it thru the day? Please don't said rebull/coffee, my parent wouldn't be caught dead with with any substance along those lines they're complete health nuts. Thanks!Missing another day od school tomorrow is not an option: one more missed practice and I'm off the team plus I have student council duties to attend to. :(
- A: i know how you feel.....maybe you should just do the work and after basketball practice just take a nap or fall asleep early tomorrow .....just push through it.
- Walk-On at the Quarterback position without any high school experience?
- Q: Ok, thanks to Michigan I now know that yes you CAN walk on at the QB position. Well, in my case, I go to a Magnet School (high school with HIGH academic standards) so we do not have a football program at all. I really want to play football but so far there have not been any camps around the area I live in or any other alternatives. I have been running and throwing the football a lot and I know for a fact I can go out there and compete (waits for unemployed recruiter to troll).This type of thing stresses me. I am an honor roll student at a difficult school (magnet school) and I have yet to take the SAT (I am in the 1st semester of my Junior year in High School) but on the practice SATs I have scored high. So grades are NOOOOTTTTT one bit of a problem so hold back the rants on that.As for my stress, I REALLY want to play QB at a college level, I mean I would fight Kimbo Slice right now if it guaranteed me earning a shot at the Quarterback position at a division 1A or division 1AA college. I mean Quarterback, no other position. Also, I may get accepted into an Ivy League school, so here are my questions (after I have provided the background information).1. Will I get an OPPORTUNITY to show D-1A recruits how good I can play and show them some promise or will they say, "sorry, no high school football, no opportunity"?2. Is it true that at Ivy League schools they do not recruit for football? 3. Is there a case where someone who did not play quarterback in high school ended up playing to on a college (D-1, D-2, or D3) or even NFL level?4. I am Indian (India), will my race play a factor in me getting to play Quarterback at a Division 1a or Ivy League school? Or even a D-1AA school?5. What can I do right now to prepare myself to play Quarterback at a D-1A level? I am kinda chubby but I have lost most of my potbelly and I am starting to develop a 6 pack now, the last time (1 year ago) when I ran the 40 yd dash at my cousin's school (I was visiting, unfortunately my stubborn parents will not let me go there) my time was 4.6.As you can see, I am passionate about this. Day and night this thought just haunts my dream, I have come too far in life in order for someone to say no. I used to be the dumbest kid in elementary school according to teachers but after that I made nothing but A's. I did not even know a word in English when I was 11 and the English language teacher told me "You are an idiot that will never learn English", now I am taking AP Literature and have an A in it (I was born in Chicago but my family moved a lot to different countries like France and Germany). I could not even make a free throw in Basketball in middle school and the coach told me I suck at it, now I easily make three pointers. I know I can do it but will I ever get an opportunity to be a Quarterback?
- A: Ouch, oh and I added you as a contact btw, but anyways, I kinda had to suffer through the same, 9th grade when I was in Georgia I had to attend a magnet school and well, no football!Then in the 10th-11th grade I played QB for my high school in Chicago, (10th grade I was a back up, we won the state championship with St Rita), and in the 11th grade I was a starter. As for your situation, 1. I hate to tell you this, if you plan on being a D-1A QB, then forget about it (unless you are talking about the MAC conference, but as for the PAC 10 and Big 10, I am sorry, it just won't happen). You can have the heart of Tom Brady and the mind of Peyton Manning along with the arm of Donovan McNabb and legs of Michael Vick, its not gonna happen, they will look at one thing "no high school football experience, no shot at QB no matter HOW good you are". So basically, you can lead a team to 10 TDs in one game at the camp but still they won't let you start, they have to pay the guy they recruited. You will get an opportunity but no matter HOW good you play they will say NO.2. This is true so get that high SAT Score and pursue your dream. If you show a bit of promise, these schools will put you through a program and make your NFL dreams come true. Ivy League schools do not recruit for football, this is a golden opportunity for you right here, TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT!3. That is A LOT of players, so yes there has probably has been a case in which one has played quarterback without high school football experience, not many times at a d-1a level.4. Your race will not play a factor at an Ivy League school, those schools do not even look at race much. As for D-1A schools, well I wouldn't go to any in California because they will deny you a scholarship based on race, especially if you are Indian or Asian, hopefully some breaks that barrier. As for SEC and big 10 schools race won't be much of an issue.5. Well first of all, find a camp. Also, life weights but do not do it too much (no squats!) for that will stop you from growing to full height. Focus on getting that high SAT Score, it will get you that opportunity you need at an Ivy League school to play QB. Go out there and do your thing! Get the grades and well best thing I can prefer is just jog or run!Those are a lot of things to have to go through man but I bet this makes the football seem like not such an arduous task does it? Keep the passion and ambition, it will take you far in life and even in football at the QB position. Also a quick demand, when you get to the NFL, beat the New York GIANTS FOR ME!Edit:Headfirst is a cretin, especially about the Ivy League part where a recruit (academic not sport) told me they do not recruit for sports, their sports are only for their own students.
- High School Track & Field?
- Q: Ok so I'm in high school now and I plan to do indoor and outdoor track. I've done track before and usually do short distance/sprinting but the last two years (7th and 8th grade) I ran it in summer camps at a public high school but the two years before that (5th and 6th) I ran it for my old school. The thing is my school was a Catholic school though and small so even though we worked out pretty well to me and stuff I'm not sure if the program was as good as the other public schools around the area and not sure about my ability compared to the other athletes(since a good amount of the sports at the high school are competitive and try to be good teams so the middle schools try to help prepare). The football team and girl's basketball team kind of set the standards for my school. I plan to try and convince my mom to let me go running around my block starting this week (she's really paranoid about letting me go outside on my own though) so I can prepare for the runs in practice so I don't burn out easily. But I know I also need to do other things like squats, core workouts, and push-ups. I wanted to know from experienced people how I should split up the days and also how can I try to increase my strength and speed some in and around my house by the time it starts and during the season? I heard resistance bands work but I'm not too keen on it. Any other advice is welcome, thanks.
- A: Wow! You have a really mature and intelligent outlook for someone your age. One, get involved with your high school coach as he will be the hands on person training you. Two, one great thing about running is that you can do it every where so if your mom has an issue with you running around the block just run up and down in front of your house or go out for cross country. Even if you don't compete in cross country, you can run with adult supervision and all your time doesn't have to be spent running. You can do the core and strength work you wisely mention. I would run 4 days and do strength 3 days, with a day of over lap because it would be good to have a day of total rest. I agree with your view of resistance bands. Body weight workouts will do just fine. Core workouts like the plank, side plank and bird dog. Start with 3 sets (repetiions) of 30 seconds and build up to 2 minutes. If 30 seconds are too much, start with 15. Up it 15 seconds every month. Squats and lunges are good. You should also do hamstrings and calves. The calves you can do with calf raises which are just standing on tip toes or as you get stronger on the edge of a stair step. For the hamstrings, lay down next to your bed or a couch or chair on your back. Put one foot on the chair, bed, couch and the other door on the knee that is on the chair, bed, couch and raise your hips. For all these exercises start with 8, next month, 10 then 12 then 15 and hold there. That would be fine. For your pushups too.Finally, after all your workuts, stretch. Calves, hamstrings, hips, buttocks. Never stretch without a warm up.There is a lot of information on all this on the internet.Good luck and much success!
