What's the 1 thing you'd have done differently if you went back to high school?

I would have forged the parent permission slip and played football. I was, and still am, very competitive and quite an athlete, but when I was younger I was a skinny runt. My parents wouldn't allow me to play football for fear that I'd get hurt. I didn't grow until I was a junior in high school (1'6" over the summer). I play flag football now (too old to play tackle), but I'm at such a disadvantage because my play is based purely upon my talent rather than a combination of knowledge and talent (as is just about every other player on the field).

Yep, you're right. I can remember acting a certain way or doing some things because I was worried about being accepted, or I was trying to establish some sort of identity that was different from that of my own. But, I guess you live and you learn.
