My DS doesnt want to play football this year

We have always been a football family, DS has played since he was a kid. And now he just entered his senior year of HS after being the star quarterback the other three years of school and he lied to me about going to practice over the summer and signing up. I didnt know until his coach called me and said they really wanted him to play. So i finally asked DS what hes been doing since he isnt going to practice. He met a girl..... I guess he thought that we would love her shes quiet, sorta awkward and wears black all the time. I dont think she is good for my son. And he was saying how shes a good girl and she gets good grades. But she is NOTHING like his exs who were all pretty much cheerleaders, This girls changing my son and i dont like it. I know my son will hate me and continue to see her if i tell him he cant. But i really dont want them together. How would i go about getting him to go back out with his ex he practically left to see this new girl? She was beautiful, not awkward and still got good grades but didnt bribe him to lie to me about not playing football and instead cheered him on! Is there really anyway or should i just watch my son spiral down with this dark haired, black clothed wearing, fat girl?

Is this about your son & football or your son & his choice of dates?

 You can't get your son to go back out with his ex. Sounds like he is going down a new path. As long as he isn't skipping school and doing drugs you cannot force him to be what YOU want him to be.

Let him make his own decisions. He's not using drugs, stealing cars or knocking over liquor stores, so just back off a bit.

Or embrace this girl because your son actually cases about her. Tell him there is no need to give up other interests just because he is seeing her. Get him back in practice and allow him some time outside of football to spend with her. Encourage him to bring her to dinner.

I dont want to get to know this girl. Who wears black all the time unless there in some type of cult or weird dark magic crap.

You need to let you DS make his own choices.  You can't make him play football, you can't choose his girlfriends, and there is a reason all of the cheerleaders are EXs.  Maybe he is finding that he is really into dark haired, black clothed wearing, fat girls?  Could be a LOT worse, believe me.

Just my opinion.
