High school football players stay cool under pressure

The ball is snapped. The QB hands it off. And every player on the field must make big decisions within a split second.

For the sake of the play, or even the game, high school football players are taught the importance of remaining calm and decisive when everything around them is chaotic.

Instead of panicking, they stay focused. Instead of making poor judgment calls, they keep clarity of mind. Instead of making unnecessary mistakes and performing below their capabilities, they thrive in the heat of the moment.

High school football teaches players how to stay cool under pressure. And they’ll continue to be composed, no matter what life throws their way.
