A young man with my last name began his junior year in high school in August. He juggles school and homework with a couple of part-time jobs — an outside seasonal one and a steady job indoors. In the spring he'll add another ball to his juggling act when varsity baseball rolls around. He is not the only student-athlete-employee-juggler in high school. This circus act is repeated from one community and school district to the next.
