Seriously, high school sports emphasize winning more than anything. No coach ever says we don't have to win. We are just here to enrich ourselves. And yet, after 3-4 months go do whatever other sport you like. Its a system wrong to its core!
Why would you give 110% for 3-4 months and then let the skills waste for another 8 months? You can never win anything doing it only for 3-4 months, so why go 110% with little results? Why not go 70% and enjoy?
