    Bro science or not, I completely agree. I make my sons run outside to get ready for tryouts starting in June. Not bc it makes them tough, but bc of this reasoning. I believe it allows them to acclimate as the temperatures rise through the summer and is easier on their bodies as work gets more strenuous.

    So did the parents of the boy who had to go to the hospital complain to the school?

    Goodness. Reading this is giving me a panic attack on what my kids will be doing in High School. Maybe no pads at all until game day. If I recall right. Watch films on Saturday morning if we had a Friday night game, if a Saturday day game films on Monday and then full equipment after Mon thru Thurs if a Saturday game then Helmets and shoulder pads for walk through on Friday. If a Friday night game, Full pads Mon thru Wed and walk thru on Thurs. also had full equipment 2 a days for about 10 days with no dead period. Also had running program and agility program in the summer and had a winter lifting and agility program. Most played other sports so you would lift after your other practice. I know kids safety is most important but geez. How do you get in game condition if you can’t go full pads and have contact during the season..... Just my thoughts. Anyone else do something like I did 94 to 97?

    13. Within reason, you must use correct spelling, capitalization, punctuation, and grammar when posting on the forums.
    Any other takers?

    What are you talking about. I am sure they practiced Monday. And coach will not make that an excuse if they lose this week. Parents need to trust the process out there the coaching staff does a great job with what they have to work with.
    Boone County schools are not allowed to practice on holidays, so yes, it was a short week for all.

    Most kids now are softer, just a fact. Air conditioning kills anyone when you stay in it all day then put the pads on. When you don't make contact much in practice, you can't expect to flip a light switch in the game and say (It's full go now). I see many more injuries now also, due to not being used to game speed and contact.
