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

Film, practice, and strength and conditioning. The more knowledge you have on your opponent by watching the film the more confident you are getting ready for that matchup. Next thing would be practice,because now that you have visualized what you needed to see from your opponent, you can put those things together on the field to better prepare yourself. I would say Strength and Conditioning come after that because after you watch your opponent you physically put together what you need to do for that week, you can start to prepare to get your body ready for the workload ahead.
