Air rifles are still dangerous. I know someone who shot himself in the hand with one at point blank range and caused major damage.

Thanks guys. Well i have a bit of news, I've just got in contact, via email, with the central coast mariners about them sending a scout from the U21's national youth league squad to watch me play, however, i asked if they could see me in a year/couple of years when im older, bigger, and more experi...

do college coaches scout a little through high school or only through academies and showcases? I'd say most scouting is done through big tournaments and showcase events only because it allows the coaches to see more players at one time. Budgets for college soccer, even at the big schools, isn't muc...

This seems to be happening more and more. Adam Stansfield, 31, of Exeter City passed away in August from cancer. I think he had only been diagnosed with it for a few months before he died.

Dale Roberts was a goalkeeper for Rushden & Diamonds that passed away this season as well. Only 24 years old!

Do you have any game tape? Coaches will ask for it as well. The shooting video is fine to send but I'd include game tape only because coaches ask for it 99.9% of the time. The goals are nice but I agree with desire10 it would better if you actually had a keeper who would try to save the shots. Just ...

I think GPA/grades are just as important as playing ability. I think a recruit only needs a 2.5 gpa and a 16 on the ACT, 900 on the SAT to qualify for a D1 scholarship, however I seriously hope most athletes grades are better than that! Having a good gpa in high school will really help you in colleg...

This mightn be what you want to hear, but you could try drinking socially with a few of them, or even learn to go out with them sober. Like a career in soccer would be worth any sacrifice to most... But a happy life ie social, is a huge cornerstone of happiness... Don't go out and get hammered, but...

Wow I certainly know how you feel. I drifted apart from my best friend a few years ago, it was really hard. We had been friends for probably 17-18 years, we "knew" each other in the womb, we hung out all the time, spent weekends at each other's houses, talked about going to a certain college and bei...

First off congratulations on doing well on your exams and getting some scholarship money. Any money you can get is better than none. Even though you missed Bio by one mark you still did well enough to get that close! I know that doesn't help ease your disappointment. You clearly put a lot of effort ...

Not that difficult to figure out. Smithy is talking about footballer's wives and girlfriends, think about it.

senior year (2 years) Im in love with her I honestly want to marry her So why did you cheat on her not once but twice and then keep it from her. Did you honestly think she wouldn't find out? To make it worse she ended up hearing it from someone else because you wouldn't admit it to her. Were you dr...

I say go for it. See if you can tryout this year even though you are 16, it would be good experience. You could be able to tryout at 16 or at least 17, a few people have played on PDL teams while still in high school. I think it would also help give you an idea about the college level since most of ...
