Is it too early to be thinking about next years football season? I think not! I'm sure many of the football teams have started lifting already in hopes of football glory in fall of 2010.
Don't forget you gridiron heroes that you can't afford to sit around and wish your way to success. I'm sure many of you are playing winter sports. If not, you probably should be. If you decided to take the winter off let me encourage you not to do the same thing in the spring.
If you don't participate in a spring sport you should consider running track. Most great football players run track. If your a skill guy you should be sprinting and jumping this spring with your school track team. If your a lineman you should be participating by throwing the shotput and discus.
Take a look at some of the tracksters from the Huron League who excel at football; Dex Teen, Jodeci Mays, Joe Conner, Thom Box, Derek Williams, the entire SMCC starting backfield and a host of others.
Year in and year out SMCC, Airport, Milan and Jefferson are considered the "Big Four" in the Huron League in what sport? Football? Yep.... and Track & Field. Good football programs and good track programs go hand and hand.
Remember, don't sit on your butts hoping for success. Many of your opponents are doing other sports preparing to play against you.
