My son is a recruited athlete with an appointment in hand. He went into this year as one of the top ranked wrestlers in our state and is the team captain again this year. About 4 weeks ago he suffered a mild concussion, the school doctor and trainers have kept him out of competition ever since we thought that his season was over. He is now feeling better and the doctor told us it is possible that he could clear him to compete in the sectional tournament so he can qualify for the state championships. The problem is he would have to go into that tournament without any meaningful workouts or practices. We are thinking that the best decision is not let him compete, that going up against some of the toughest kids in the state without any competition for so long is a recipe for disaster. Our reasoning is he has worked hard for the last 6 years to get into West Point, he achieved his goal so he has nothing to gain by trying to come back and risk an injury that could prevent him from attending. He kind of feels that he is letting his teammates down, and wants to see if he can win a state championship. Any thoughts or comments would be greatly appreciated.
