who cares. They have run off 6 kids this year on varsity who never got to play. Also, our star, missed the bus to the Edgewood Tournament and he still got to play the whole tournament. Double standard on who you are. Typical Bonham basketball.

So your grandson or son quit. It is varsity not peewee so not everyone gets to play. Work harder and get better to play. That is simple, have you ever thought the coach might be working on plays or conditioning. More than likely not. Also those six skipped some practices which is not the same as late for a buss

I am sure the band of 6 will be okay. Sorry they decided to quit, but that's life. I suggest they find a rec league if they won't assured playing time.

SO, I am not associated with any of the kids. The star also missed practice for no reason and no consequences. You don't know the situation. There is no assurance on playing time, but when you are ahead with 2 minutes to go and up twenty,how do you justify the kids not playing when their parents pay taxes. What if it were your kid how would you feel. I am not talking about starting just playing a few minutes when the sitution dictates itself. Your comments about peewee are totally out of line. I am for the kids and always will be. Everyone can not be a star. these kids just wanted to be part of a team and play a little bit when the game was one-sided. What if it had been your child? How would you feel.

Plenty of parents pay taxes and have kids that don't play any sports. I really don't understand your statement about that.

Being part of the team is an experience that I am sorry they chose to give up on. You only go through HS one time and only have the one chance to experience it.

Paying taxes is irrelevant, end of story. In a managers meeting to we discussed differentiating high performance employees against average and how the compensation should be according. These kids got a real world education and life lesson. In their professional careers they will notice the stars are promoted and the average or lower players are left behind. The coach has these boys well coached and playing hard. Other coaches will tell you that about them. So let's leave him alone and concentrate on teaching the six quitters a life lesson on why you should quit but work harder!

So, you would have quit too. Thes boys are great kids and are not quitters but you can only take so much as a 16 or 17 year old kid. They are were well coached no doubt. The kids above them had a great year. You are missing the point entirely. I am saying if your parents pay taxes their kids deserve to play a minute or two when the team is up by 20. The team barely had enough to finish the season.

Um, their season is not over. They still have playoffs.

I would have never quit. I played two plays in 7th grade and 7 plays in 8th grade. My dad explained how all the boys that had failed or held back were more mature and that with hard work and dedication I would get to play. Man he was right and I ended up a starter and receiving college scholar ships offers. Never quit!!!!!!!
