    get on the reserve / has a point

    Dear teachers,

    Here are a few sentences from an English text:

    Tony didn’t get picked for the school football team and he’s disappointed.
    “I don’t understand why Miss Roberts didn’t pick me. It’s not fear. I didn’t even get on the reserve.”
    You see, Tony, Miss Roberts has a point.”

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expressions in bold?

    get on = be on

    get on the list = be on the list

    have a point = have grounds

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.
