Everyone's pushing the extracurriculars at school, which can get pretty tiresome after a while. But if we're straight up, high school sports can't actually help make your time in school go by a lot faster. And who knows? Maybe you become the GOAT at football and net yourself a scholarship. It's possible. Why bother just doing class day in and day out when you can get time off for practice, maybe take a trip out of town to playing in some tournaments and, if nothing else, snag yourself another jacket you can wear when it gets a little breezy out? There are more upsides to high school sports than downsides for sure. You have a built-in crew of people who you know who share your interests, and if you guys do good, you basically become school heroes. That's pretty cool.
OK, so you're sold on the idea of playing some sports; now we just need to know what sport. You can't just walk onto any field or court and be Odell or LeBron. You need to be smart about it and play to your strengths. So let's find out who you are and what you're into, then pick the perfect sport for you. It'll be easy; take the quiz and see!
