Hey Brandon, Okay, here’s my issue—I love playing basketball and soccer, and I’m pretty good at both.

I HATE TEAM SPORTS IN PE!!! ☹️

Dear Brandon, Please help me! At my school, teams in P.E. are SO unfair. All the sporty kids are picked for the same team, and then they DESTROY the rest of us. If I do end up on the same team as the sporty kids, they yell at me for not being good enough!!! I […] Read more

WILL THE STAR ATHLETE OF MY SCHOOL EVER NOTICE ME?!

Dear Brandon, HELP!!! I have a crush on a super cute STAR athlete. I have P.E with him, but the problem is… I’m TERRIBLE at sports!

Am I A Quitter?!

Hey Brandon, I’ve been playing soccer FOREVER. My dad coached when I was little, and then I moved up into school teams. But lately, I just don’t enjoy it anymore. It lost its spark and I want to quit, but my parents are so proud of me doing it and it’s always been something I’ve […] Read more

I’m Not Into The Same Afterschool Activities As My Friends!

Dear Nikki, All my friends go to afterschool activities like dance, gymnastics and soccer. I’m not really into that kind of stuff since I’m not very athletic. Lately, it’s all they ever do or talk about, and I’m starting to feel left out. I sometimes even wonder if I should pretend to like those activities […] Read more

SHOULD I SHOW MY SPORTY SIDE?

So, I am the most popular girl at my school, but I don’t terrorize everyone like Mackenzie. I have very good fashion sense and people ask for it.

I’M THE ONLY GIRL ON THE FOOTBALL TEAM!!

Hey Brandon, I’ve been training with my school’s football team, and it’s a lot of fun. The only thing is that the guys all underestimate me because I’m a GIRL. Even though I can beat almost all of them in our half mile warm up and keep up in weight training, they still don’t take […] Read more

I WANT IN ON THE GAME!!

Hey Brandon, I’m always super excited to play games during PE class. But the thing is, some people HATE when I’m on their team! Like in Basketball, nobody passes the ball to me, even if I’m open.
