How can you make this statement? Do you even know what kind of student he is? I don't but if he gives half the effort in the classroom that he gives on the football field, I'd say he is probably a good student. Don't make generalizations about anyone just because they love to play a sport. There are many kids who excel on the playing field as well as in the classroom. How are your or your kids' grades and do you or your kids participate in any extracurricular activities?
