High school football develops character by teaching lifelong lessons

Why is high school football considered an education-based sport?

Being a good teammate. Treating others with respect. Finding ways to improve. Being accountable, adaptable and dependable.

These are just some of the ways that players develop character on the high school football field and grow as people off the field too.
