What will boost your teen’s confidence? Offer mentors who believe in them? Make them feel like they belong? High school football!

There’s nothing better than playing under the Friday night lights. That’s why high school football players spend months preparing for a handful of games: Running drills. Lifting weights. Practicing plays. And staying focused through it all.

Attention to detail is key to every part of playing high school football, from running routes and tackling techniques to watching game film and learning plays.

This is High School Football

Over the last 10 years, participation in high school football has declined by about 10%. That’s why the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) has partnered with the NFL to promote the lasting benefits that high school football has on students for the rest of their lives.

We have three goals:

  1. Promote the value of participating in football in middle school and high school.
  2. Improve the perception of football at the middle school and high school levels.
  3. Restore confidence that the sport is more focused on safety and risk minimization than ever before.

With your help, we can spread the word about the benefits of participating in high school football and celebrate this essential team sport for decades to come.
