The trophy business is doing really good these days.
It seems as if young athletes on every team are getting them. Nearly every team my kids played on when they were small gave trophies to every kid on their team.
My kids are college and older now and those trophies are long forgotten. But the “Best defensive player,” “MVP”, “Best Hustle”, “All-Star”, “Most-inspirational” awards? They are still on display.
I’m not crazy about this trophies-for-everyone culture we’ve created for our athletes. But I decided to ask other parents what they think. There were a few who supported the idea.
