Being in high school, the pinnacle of many people's sports life, I see what happens in sports around this age, and what sports are good.
Would not: I agree on football
I personally have had multiple concussions, and quit football because of them. Very fun sport to play, but not worth the risk for most.
Lacrosse is not a big sport outside of the east, but in my opinion it is one of the best. I started playing it last year (freshman year), and I love it. It requires great coordination, teamwork, fitness, and toughness. It has everything rugby has, and more.
Would not: Track
"You can run your whole life, but you can only play lacrosse up through high school, maybe college" -Quote from my lacrosse coach on someone quitting to do track. I wholeheartedly agree. In track people go to a 4 or so hour meet, and run one or two events. That to me would just not be fun. Running is a part of any sport, so why not play a real sport instead of track?
Basketball is a great sport, that you can play the rest of your life. The teamwork, coordination, and fitness required is great.
out of room.

Didnt think we would agree on american football..
Track.. It depends on the event..
i is kind of silly waiting around all day to throw a spear or a rock..
running is great for character building..
it teaches you discipline and pain..
plus you get in shape.. And improve your chances of gettin tail..
i did track, xcountry and long distance in h.s. And 2 years in college..
it was fun..
i got to see all of england, and the north east of america..
heck, we even went on a road trip to s.carolina in college..
i did prefer x_country over track, cause it was scenic..
but once a year, the track stars would get their moment..
thousand of people would show up at our h.s. Sportsday,
get hammered and watch us run.. It had a spanish bull fight feel..
Lacrosse and basket ball are fun.. But not as character building as rugby..
Nba is always dominated by one dude.. Which usually destroys his ego..
there are soo many tools in the nba, bad role models..
rugby is better at teaching humility..
