    A Player In The School Football Team

    Dear Native English-speaking Teachers,

    Do the following two sentences mean the same? :


    "I am a player in the school football team."

    "I am on the school football team."

    If yes, do the following three also mean the same?

    "I am a football player in the school team."

    "I am at the school football team."

    "I am in the school football team."

    "I am with the school football team."

    Thank you in advance.

    P.S.
    Sorry for posting the same question for the second time with the title changed in order to have an answer.

    "On the team" is the correct preposition.
