Focus on ACADEMICS, then let's worry about the football program. How likely is it that a student can execute smart plays, when they read and comprehend at a third grade level? It's a no brainer.

My child plays on the team and he is very smart. Don't trash the team when the boys practice very hard. It very hard for 1 player to play 4 quarters with no sub. Also if more boys at the school would come forward and play for their school then we could be better. Football is the only sport that does not get free shoes, clothes and the respect of the school itself. These boys are doing the best they can and they are respectful of their coach, whether right or wrong for his choices, they do RESPECT.

Okay I know that it is not fair that the other sports get their things free, but if you think it is bad for the football players just come down to the soccer fields. At least you have a concession stand, bathrooms, locker rooms and weight equipment. And lets not even talk about the support of the school. Soccer is still the red headed step child and our kids work very hard to be prepared to RUN 45 minutes at a time for two halves. It would be great if all the sports got respect and support! Our kids deserve it.

Well hello there!!!!!!!!!! Soccer is a great sport that some kids are interested in playing. It gives the same college opportunities as the rest of high school sports. East Carter has an up and coming program that needs community and school support. Dont know the game until you try it. Its not as easy as some people seem to think.
yeah right

Soccer is a European sport.....Unless u have kids planning on going to Europe to play soccer in the pro's, it should be treated like the chess team.

That is the problem. It seems that all the clubs and programs could use a little more support. Not just the powerful 3 of football, basketball and baseball. East has had success in tennis, soccer, cross country and golf. Do these athletes get the attention and praise equally. I dont believe so.

You do realize that soccer is a national sport with college opportunities. It is physical and fast paced. Come out and watch a match sometime. Oh and yes there are opportunities to make money playing soccer in the US, but of course that goes for football, baseball and basketball also so I guess we need to start treating them like the chess team also. Of course it does take alot of intelligence to play chess.

And how many of our basketball, baseball and football players will go on to earn their livings by playing those sports? And to the person who asked how many people showed up for a science experiment, that's the problem around here; hundreds will show up to watch kids toss around a ball, but couldn't care less about academics. That's why things will never change around; the mentality that places athletics above academic pursuits. More parents NEED to show up when their children are doing science experiments. Try it sometime; it's called promoting well-rounded, EDUCATED children.
