High school football sharpens the mind and the body

Did you know high school football is a total body workout? It’s true!

The constant stop and start nature of the game improves everything from endurance, speed and strength to coordination, agility and flexibility.

But it goes even further, enhancing mental health too. It relieves stress. It boosts endorphins. It clears players’ heads. And it improves focus, clarity and self-esteem.

High school football is mentally and physically demanding, from conditioning and weightlifting to practice and playing. Players are always moving … always focused … always in the zone.

But most of all, they’re having fun! And it’s the perfect way for teens to create healthy habits that will last long after their playing days are over.

Talk to the students in your family about participating in football! This is building a strong mind and a strong body. This is high school football.

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.
