Top Ten Toughest High School SportsThis is not toughest sports, but it's the toughest highschool sports. Ones which you dreaded all day, but you just couldn't quit.
The Top Ten
In the sport of wrestling, only 1 wrestler can represent the team for a given weight class in the varsity division. This means that you have to compete and win against every other team-mate you have in the same weight class for the right to compete at the next meet. Fail this, and you're next shot is JV (and no junior or senior wants to be here). Fail that, and you don't compete.
I've played every sport out there. None of them challenged not only my athletic skills, but my mental and emotional toughness like wrestling did. Every teenage boy should wrestle, it would prepare the men of tomorrow. - decdahalls
By far, the toughest high school sport out there. Requiring so much skill, strength, speed, determination, endurance, stamina, mental and physical fitness. Don't diss it unless you tried it. Anyone who trashes on it either hasnt tried it, or couldn't handle it.

We don't get off seasons. To be Good, you run every single day. That means, literally forcing yourself to wake up at the crack of dawn to put yourself through physical pain. Also, there is no one forcing you to run, or telling you that you must run because the rest of the "team" wants your spot on the varsity 7. Oh yeah, did I mention only top 7 make it? It's not like football or baseball or basketball or hockey or soccer or any other team sport where almost 15-30 guys make the varsity team. It's 7, and only 7.
The pain of running distance on terrain gets itself into your nightmares, so you may ask, why do you do it? Because it is the only test to see who can handle more pain, For 20 minutes on a 5k course that makes you question your own sanity, and makes you convinced you we're shaking hands with the grim reaper
You feel like absolute hell during the entire meet. You just have to tell yourself " I'll put myself through more hell to win this race "
Running is a mental sport and where all insaneV 5 Comments
The early morning practices, ranging from long endurance that makes slow torture seem relatable to the fast sprints where you wonder if it's possible if your heart will pop out. Oh yeah, combined with no breathing and freezing water. You love the sport, hate the swimming.
True training involves agony pain levels. Oh yeah, limited to no breathing.
When you get tired while swimming, it's a life-death situation...
Easiest sport in the world, next to baseball - decdahalls
Aside from the skill, mental preparation, and physical contact, football requires loads of work to prepare you for the game.
Crew is easily one of the most physically enduring sports. I wouldn't have any sport above it to be honest. Until you have tried it you can't judge it.
This requires so much stamina that takes sooo long to get.
Rugby is just Football for men.
Running, conditioning, skillwork, nonstop, and then practice starts.
6 players trying to beat the living hell out of 6 other players in the water. No breaks and no giving up because it literally means you can be drowned
Throw the best wrestler or quarterback you know in 8 feet of water and tell them to tread water without using their hands for 45 minutes. Then tell them to do that while passing and catching a balll with one hand while someone else is doing their level best to drown them in the process.
We used to play water polo after swim practice to wind down.V 1 Comment
Ice on blades, Fighting, big sticks... It's a mans sport...
