Linebacker

Conor imagined that he didn’t have much time left at the University, not after the Great Shift. Before the Shift, he had been a linebacker on the football team. He weighed over 300 pounds and was great at his position. But the Shift had swapped him with a cheerleader. He was now maybe 100 pounds at best (as well as female!). He was sure the school would be pulling his football scholarship any day now, but he took the time to continue doing some of the things he liked best, such as working out on the field. As he did, he wondered if he still had the ability of this cheerleader. Were there cheerleading scholarships? Could he figure out a way to stay in school; he had to give it a try, and he started to work out harder.
