If my dream jobs don't exactly workout, how can I make sure I will have a backup plan?

I need to figure out what I am going to do if I don't end up playing football for whatever college I go to.

I don't think there's ever a sure way to have a backup plan. Life always changes. You can really define your interests and what you're best at. I'd say know when to pivot and rely on your strengths to guide you. You'll also find that life has a way of opening new doors. Just be ready for those. It's also OK to not know either. Many adults are still figuring it out.

A pilot has a parachute but he never thinks of using it at first. It's a backup plan if anything goes wrong and its necessary to have one.

It is very important to have back up plan in life, especially for career choice where success ratio is less. At the end of the day, you need to fulfill your basic needs i.e food, money, bills etc and not everyone is rich enough to keep working on dream goal for long time without earning.

What you can do is give your entire focus on main subject i.e football but never neglect other subjects completely (could be studies). Maintaining average score in 1 other field is not really difficult of most of us while we are trying to excel in one.

This way you are going to make sure that you have you will be having a safe career while you can continuously work on your dream in parallel.

Always careful that you don't start relying on your back up plan because it's easy to settle down as an average person.
