Hello, I'm a 17 year old guy working on my application to the USAFA. I know playing in high school sports and being in clubs is a big part of getting accepted to the USAFA, but I was wondering if it hurts my chances that I never played sports in High School? You see, I played football all the way from kindergarten through 8th grade, and I loved it. I also played baseball and soccer from kindergarten through 4th grade, but my main sport was football. Then when I got older, I started to work for my dad a lot more on our farm. Then by the end of 8th grade I started competitively racing motocross. That is when I realized I was much better at and had more fun with motocross. With that combination of motocross, farm work, and school work, I decided it would be best to not play football starting freshman year. And I think it was a good choice, considering I have been able to keep all of my grades up at the A and B level, and I have gained (and still learning) a ton of valuable experience working with my dad, all while having the time of my life with racing. The other thing is that I'm not part of any clubs or other organizations at school. Its not that I'm lazy, just the fact that the only thing my school has to offer other than sports is band and National Honor Society. I tried joining the Jazz Band, me being a guitarist, but apparently the only way I could be accepted was if I had been in regular band since 6th grade. And for NHS, I simply dropped the ball on that one, and couldn't get my application in on time. Now that I am a senior in high school and I'm working on the application process for the USAFA, I am worried that the Academy and my application for a Congressional nomination won't take into consideration what I have done with my time without playing team sports or clubs in high school. Thoughts???
