•  Film Study, Strength, and Conditioning, and Practice I believe this is the most important order. Film is super important being a student of the game gives you the edge, learning from your previous film in practice or in a game helps you learn to correct simple mistakes before even hitting the practice field film study makes the preparation from game week to game day so much easier that’s why it is the most important. Strength and conditioning is the second most important thing in the game we play if you do not take of your body the proper way you won’t last long my strength and conditioning coach always preaches how pivotal it is to stay healthy get the proper treatment and to lift and run consistently and last but not least practice is where you put everything together all the things you learned from film sessions this is the time where you perfect your craft.

What do you worry about, and why?
