I love high school football. It seems that our high school teams do well locally, but when they have to play other teams out of state, they get creamed.
I did a little research and found something interesting. If you want to be big winners at high school football, you have to hire a full-time personal trainer to condition the atheletes.
Texas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas for example all hire personal trainers to train the players at the high school level. Coaches know how to write plays, teach fundamentals and motivate players. However, most high school football coaches don't know what personal trainers know. In fact, in some cases, they do more harm than good.
I understand the economy is bad and hiring a professional trainer may not be in the budget. I guess it just depends on how badly we want to win.
