Thank you for the great feedback! Poor kid's gonna burn a year of eligibility because of arrogance.
As context, his WE was at 47 and when I gave him the RS, it dropped to 38. Perfectly fine, but I wanted to get one almost-full season of 47-style improvement and then four at 38, which in my mind was better than 5 at 38. I redid the RS this morning and his WE dropped to 1, so we'll have to deal with 4 seasons (only 3 of which he'll see minutes) at 47. I've given an RS almost every season for both of my programs and had never experienced a kid's displeasure, so this one was a new one.
