Sorry. New to this forum. My son just got a Congressional nomination. He blew his ACL out the summer before his senior year and is nearing the end of his rehab. He has not taken the CFA or the medical exam (Dombre?). The doc says he is progressing so fast, they may let him wrestle before February (he was actually a potential State qualifier before the injury and one of the better soccer players in SW Ohio). We weren't blowing his chances up too big for Academy nomination (so as not to disappoint him - he already has faced huge disappointment this year with tremendous resilience). He is exclusively interested in Air Force Academy. He has done EVERYTHING himself without any assistance from me or his mom. His guidance counselor has not been all that helpful to be honest. My question is, what should he be doing now? I told him I would get ahold of the ALO assigned to this area. The doctors have told him he probably should be able to start "cutting" in the next couple of weeks. Had he taken the CFA this summer, no doubt in my mind he would have Max scores on everything (he ran under 6:00 miles as an eighth grader and his upper body strength as a top wrestler is amazing). He should be able to take the CFA by January and get good scores. By February, he will have great scores. Can he wait to take it or take it as soon as possible? The other issue is the last thing we want to see is him reinjure his ACL. He was fortunate in that there is no joint damage, it was a "clean" ACL tear.
