Tell us about your hometown, and what you love most about it?

List these three in order of importance and why: Film Study, Strength and Conditioning and Practice?

  • Film study, Practice, and strength and conditioning. Those three things are important in that order because you take what you learn in film study to the practice field and practice all the different scenarios that can happen in the game. Once you learn that the game on Saturdays will be second nature to you. Strength and conditioning prepare you to deliver a beating on your opponents for 60 minutes.

What do you worry about, and why?
