Is junior year too late to start playing football?

I want to become more involved in extracurricular activities and have been thinking about joining the football team. However, I'm a junior, and I've never played before. Is it too late for me to start, or should I just go for it?

It's great that you want to become more involved in extracurricular activities and are considering joining the football team! First of all, it's important to remember that it's never too late to try something new. Many people start new sports or activities in their junior or senior years of high school and still have a really enjoyable experience.

While you might not have the same level of experience as some of your teammates, your dedication and willingness to learn will be key here. If you're interested in playing football and feel that you can commit the time and effort required, I encourage you to give it a shot. It's better to try something you're interested in and see if you enjoy it, rather than regret not trying at all.

Joining the team might also help you develop new skills and make new friends. Plus, it'll showcase your willingness to step out of your comfort zone and take on new challenges, which is a quality that colleges and future employers appreciate. So, go for it and good luck!
