Daniel Taylor scanned the team list which was posted outside the locker room. He blinked twice and then read it again more slowly. There was no question about it; he had been cut from the squad.
He was determined to be the better man about, so sucked up his courage and went to see the coach.
“Coach Wilson,” Daniel said in a medium tone as he knocked on the frame of the open office door.
“Taylor, what can I do for you?”
“I just wanted to say that I appreciate the chance to have tried out, and wanted to ask if there is anything that I might do to improve and have a better chance next season.”
“Taylor, I appreciate your thanks, and as far as how to do better as a wide receiver in the future. . . . Um, have you ever considered badminton?”
