cyclones running back on jv, schmitz,,,,,,he played in some of the varsity games. i sometimes think he is just about as good as the starter...very tough, hardnosed runner that is hard to tackle...when i watch him in the varsity games, i wonder sometimes why he does not start

I've seen situations where a program was only dressing 16-17 kids for a JV game, so having a senior or two play JV just to give them some depth wasn't a bad idea. Otherwise, seniors playing JV is just taking reps away from an underclassmen who will still be in your program for 1-2 more years.

Or rewarding a senior who has played all 4 years and works hard, but isn’t good enough to make the varsity roster.
