This post should be mandatory reading for all parents and coaches of student athletes of any age. Truly. My son played on the opposite team in soccer one Saturday this fall, to make the teams even and avoid a forfeit. The other coach, who didn't know him, played him as their goalie. It never occurred to my son to shirk his duties as goalie to help his original team score. He played goalie just as hard against his own team as he would have against the opponents he was playing for (if you followed that). I was extra proud of him for that.
