SANFORD, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – Three freshman boys are trying out for the volleyball team.

The only problem is, Seminole High School does not have a boys volleyball team so the boys have to try out for the girls volleyball team.

“They are trying to make a statement,” Samantha Schlesman, a senior who played three years on the team, told WFLA-TV. “They want a boys team. I understand what they are trying to do. They are hilarious. I love playing with them and I think it’s a good thing.”

“There’s no guys team,” Trevor Kennan, one of the freshman trying out, told WFLA. “They don’t make that in Pinellas County for boys and so we are trying get to play here and try to start boys volleyball.”

Tony Tonova said he is taking this serious. “We love the game of volleyball,” he said. “We just want to play and this is a great opportunity for us to get out here and play and show our skills.”

The three boys expect to be made fun of if they make the team but it doesn’t seem to bother them. “They are probably going to make fun of us,” Kennan said. “But, that’s fine with me. I don’t care because at least we are playing something.”

The boys will not be embarrassed if they make a girls team. “I don’t care how embarrassing it is to come out here and play with a bunch of girls,” Garrett Peterson told the station. “I just want to have fun and play the sport.”
