WM plays Sachem East on 10/7.. I wonder if sachem will cancel the season. I respect their decision either way.

I heard. My son is a Junior at Ward melville and plays football. This hits home..
I was just speaking with my  brother the other day and I was questioning why teams do these stupid exercises like lift a tires and other exercises that the athletes aren't accustomed doing?  Such a sad story!

I'm sure you'll give your son a great, big hug, the next time you see him.

I agree with you. They dont that stupid log behind the head exercise like the Navy Seal does. They do the tire lift exercise and they all hate it..

A tragic, tragic accident. Condolences to the family.


These stupid drills never made much sense and with awareness of player safety at an all-time high, the push to end these ridiculous drills will be great.
