His body just is not ready for the stressors that pro athletes endure, and this lifestyle at such a young age has a very high rate of burn-out associated with it. If there is a sports medicine doc in your area, it would be worth the investment to consult them for an age appropriate regimen, diet and sleep schedule.

It is all ok.See 1 more doctor answer
