Having fun and staying in shape. But it mainly, in my terms, depends on what positions you would succeed in. i.e., if you were a skinny person and tried to play on the line, you would be crushed by the lineman.


Sports, particularly contact sports, are a great character-builder.

It takes courage to continue to 'go for the ball', for instance, when you know a defender is bearing down on you. Sports help teach teamwork and they teach sportsmanship, whether you are winning or losing. They teach stamina of body and stamina of mind and concentration. You learn how to place the body second for the accomplishment of a goal ... and, generally, they prepare you for a happier, healthier, longer life with more friends than would be otherwise.

I believe another benefit of playing sports, especially those where one moves in close proximity to others, is spatial awareness of others in one's regular daily living and in interaction with them (an awareness, and spatial consideration, of other moving people around you).


- Release Stress - Stay in Shape - Build Muscle Mass - Build Friendship - You could get a scholarship if you are very good - Fun activity - You could get chicks ;) - Gain Discipline - Learn more about the game - Entertain a Crowd

makes you more of a team player and allows you to get a good scholarship to a more advanced school

:Personally I play high school football. It's a great sense of pride, and it gets your name out there, and you make a lot more friends. All around, it makes a really great time, and is definitely worth doing.:

If the person playing high school football thinks playing football is fun, this is a benefit. This is probably the most important benefit there is to playing high school football or any sport. Is it fun? Do you enjoy playing the game?

If not, there are other benefits as well. These are somewhat less valuable if you ask me.

Becoming a great high school player can save the student money on college if he gets a scholarship. If he develops into a superstar there is a chance he can make lots of money as a professional.
