I've always contended this is a very typical mindset among H.S. many tennis juniors. Often defenders will excuse it as wanting a better education versus playing college tennis. I always advocate academics first. However, I firmly believe that kids who love tennis can get both a quality academic and college tennis experience looking with an open mind for a school where they can get both.
