There is a trend taking place in youth sports. Some kids are specializing and training year-round in one sport at an early age.
When I was younger, multi-sport athletes seemed to be the norm. I feel sorry for kids today who only play one sport, because I can’t imagine my past without any of the three sports I played.
As an offensive player in football, I strategized with my teammates in the huddle about how we would attack the defense.
In basketball, I remember leanring how to play both offense and defense.
