Soccer story.

My oldest son was typically the best player on his youth soccer teams. Good speed and coordination, aggressive etc. Usually played striker but one day our goalie was sick so I put my son there. He promptly gave up 3 goals in about 5 minutes of play, all because he tried to stop the ball with his feet. So I yelled at him that he could use his hands but it was obvious that he had no desire to be a goalie so I put him back to striker. He scored 3 goals pretty quickly to make up for his brain fart.

He played soccer until the 8th grade then went to football which turned out to be a good move. He played on 3 CCHS state championship teams, the ones with Darnell McDonald.
