How to make my High School career right?

Ok just a few things. First, do colleges want to see that the students did sports? or if they saw that you didnt do any sports or you did 1 sport would they take in consideration that your not athletic? But lets say I play 1 sport a year and work and do after school clubs while my sport is not going on during the year would collegs like that? or do colleges like to see kids doing a lot of sports? How do this all work? For example does doing after school clubs and doing a job compete on a college application with doing sports?

They want to see dedication and academic/extracurricular balance. And colleges... More
