Maybe it’s just me, but I really don’t see the same level of thought put into other sports as I see in highschool football. I.e.: their lack of respect for strength and conditioning
I'm going to completely contradict my self here when I say.......you cannot generalize all other sports like that. But....in general............... yeah.
In other words, always exceptions but for the most part and IME it's very true. Just the other day I had our BB coach ask if we could adjust our S & C program (of which he offers no insight, help or effort) b/c he feels his players are to bulky and it effects their shot.
First off, I thought the 1970's thought process of BB players don't lift anymore died about 3 decades ago when half the NBA started looking like FB players.
Secondly, to call our BB team a starving 3rd world village would be an insult to starving 3rd world villages. I can floss my teeth w/ most of these dudes.
Lastly, this year is the MOST any of our BB kids have lifted (saying absolutely nothing) and it's the 1st winning season in our school's HISTORY! They were a whopping 1 game over 500.
But hey.....they're too BULKY. Yeah, way bigger than that LeBron guy. He only weighs 270.
He was met w/ a stern NO by our AD before I could even open my mouth. Was nice for a change.
PS - I jus think FB guys are a different breed. The game has more moving parts and as a result requires more thought process, research, networking, etc. I think you are either drawn to that challenge or you're not. FB coaches who stick it out long term are drawn to it, others coach something else.
