High School Freshman Failing Grades

Question

My son has lost interest in his school work such that he is failing two of his Freshman high school courses. He has lost electronics/tablet privileges as a result.
His middle school years we 'helicoptered' his school work.
He initially went out for the track team this spring, but quit once he found he would likely not participate in his event at track meets [four faster runners]. He just recently began locking himself in his room and refuses to talk to me [working mom] and does not want to share evening family meal. Dad travels during the week and is home on weekends. Just yesterday, son refused to go to school and refused to speak with Dad over the phone. We have not yet sought counseling. Please advise.
