No, one of them picked students that were worse at football than me for the school team for three years in a row just because they were his favourites and they were mediocre at other sports. I'm not saying that I was good, and my school would have still lost at tournaments if I was playing, but I still think that playing on the team at such an age would have improved my confidence and social and teamwork skills, and those improvements would have transferred to other areas of my life. I was only picked for the team by a different teacher on my last year (by that time I could do little to improve) and by that time some pieces of shit were on the team as well who I didn't get along with, and I hated the whole experience. In hindsight I should have tried to get better at other sports, and maybe play on the basketball or volleyball teams. So many ways that my life could have turned out better, yet I chose the wrong decisions every time.
