also is there any training before freshman year for rotc, can you play sports, and does it increase chances at west point??

If your ACT/SAT scores are descent and you have a descent interview, you'll get the scholarship no problem.

(I received the scholarship two months ago)
I don't believe there is any training before freshman year for ROTC, although there is an option to "shadow" a cadet (MS2 or MS3) for a day/night at the college of your choice while still a senior at high school. That's a great way to see if ROTC is really what you want. I shadowed someone, and I had an absolute great time.

You can play sports, ROTC does PT early mornings before your classes even start, and labs are usually in the afternoon or early morning, so it doesn't really interfere with much. They try to work with you on those things as well.
