I'm sure this has been asked before, and I did search first....My DS will begin his 3rd year of Varsity Basketball, recommended for captain....Coach just left...He has known the coach for 7 years and was going to ask him for a recommendation. I know the Coach will do it if he asks him, but does it make a difference since he is technically not his coach anymore? He also has played Varsity golf for 3 years, (hopes to be there senior year) and he knows he will gladly write a letter for him, but he thought the bball coach was a better option..Any thoughts? I have just tell everyone again how much I appreciate all of you. As all of you know it is a long process...also have a guidance counselor that is not helpful or knowledgeable .
