Let's get back to a real discussion.#1 Coach does has a valid point here. Once in high school the top juniors have to make either tennis or school the priority. Can't do both because the very top academic programs require too much studying. Same thing at the top tennis colleges- tennis is #1 school is secondary. In high school a lot of top juniors make academics priority #1- but tennis suffers. Been there done that. I favor the college route and believe it has value. But we have to recognize that at the top programs tennis is the kid's higher priority. The college player is not a "real" student. Even at Stanford they have a list of courses for athletes to take. What do you think Mike, you have seen both sides.
