Re: Letter Jacket eligibility
I used to have a complicated point system for letter jackets. Then I started seeing band kids go do some other activity that made it easier to get a jacket. Now I keep it simple, if you participate in 3 UIL events, you get a jacket. Marching, concert, S&E as a freshman? You get a jacket during fall of sophomore year. Skip one of those? You can probably still get it by fall of junior year. Rarely do I have a senior who doesn't qualify, but if a kid gets to senior year and hasn't made it yet, I usually get them a jacket anyway.
