When one of the studs comes in talking about what college is recuiting him and he is all conference, my son can tell them he was all conference as a 10th grader in tennis, and he is being recruited by the same school.
True. Even at my son's 5th grade games they play loud music, do pre-game introductions, have half time half-court draw for a prize, and there are at least 50 people watching between family of both teams, other students and some teachers. It's really exciting.
I think my son enjoys the differences. He likes the team dynamic and excitement of basketball, but also enjoys the go-it-alone of tennis....so far.
