    There's nothing routine about carrying a 400-lb. pole above heads.

    There is nothing routine about this at all. Absolutely no place for this sort of exercise.

    Having high school kids carry a 400lb pole over their heads as a conditioning drill is as stupid as it gets. Like I said earlier in the thread, if this was an attempt at team building then there are much better safer ways of accomplishing that, from a conditioning stand point as well as team building. The coach is an idiot and at the very least lose his job. He has no business working with kids.

    Definitely not routine football drill. Sounds like a renegade idea and not well thought out.

    Were the kids wearing helmets?
