Ride 3J

“So yes, I think the team needs a captain.” Even as his eyes were fixed to the road in front of his sedan, Coach Dan’s attention was evidently focused on Rex in the passenger seat.

The tall teen’s voice was soft. “So why don’t you just name one?”

Coach Dan shook his head, eyes remaining straight. “Doesn’t work that way. That’s a decision the team has to make.”

“Double-J wants to be captain.”

“And nobody else wants him to be captain.”

“So you’re saying it’s me, or nobody?”

Coach Dan sighed. “All I’m trying to do is help you think through this, make the best decision for the team. I’m not asking if you want to be captain — your reluctance is palpable. What I’m asking is, would you being captain be what’s best for the team?”
