B team football practices and prepares for practices. The football team does many different drills, players switching teams, and working on tackling and conditioning.

Middle school football teams A and B work hard in practice and in games getting better and progressing each day.

Players do many different drills and conditioning in prac- tice. They work on offense and defense playing with different people and different teams. They also do many conditioning drills that have to do with running and handling the ball. The football team practices and conditions on the football field. All the hard work, sweat, and energy pays off once the teams win games and feel proud.

The teams have football practice for a reason: to help improve for their games. How exactly does practice help with gameplay?

“It helps you by learning what plays you have to know and energy pays off once the teams win games and feel proud.

“It helps you by learning what plays you have to know and it helps you review all of your po- sitions so you can do good in the games,” Seventh grader Scott Rueben staid.

Practice also makes the teams more comfortable with the game. Players think it helps them get more comfort- able with tackling because it’s a whole new concept. Practice improves games and lets the players work to the best of their ability when game night comes.

Players have to play many different positions, but they do all have favorites. Many football players prefer defense rather than offense.

Liam Dennis, a player on B team, likes defensive tackle because he gets to hit people.

As for other players many like corner and wide receiver. Football players also have positions that involve their personal strongest, and weakest position. Some players on B team believe that their defense per- forms stronger then their offense. Other players also have opinions on which position is their personal strongest.

Ben Gordon believes his strongest position is corner. As for other players, a common strong position would be defen- sive tackle and corner. Many players have opinions on their favorite and best positions.

Players have many goals for this season.

“My goals for this season are to block at least ten passes,” said Dennis.

Another player Gordon has goals to play the best he pos- sibly can.

“To get better at football, and to learn all the things I didn’t know when I joined and to have a good season with my team are my goals,” Rueben said.

These goals can be achieved by working hard in practice, playing hard in games, and

all the teammates trying their hardest.

Both football teams have been working very hard this season. Teams A and B both practice every week working on running drills, drills that include the ball, tackling workouts, and conditioning. Also Faith Lutheran has a football funda- mentals class which includes both teams, that takes place firstblockonmaroondays.Last football players even had sum- mer workouts, A and B prac- ticed and conditioned during the summer to get ready for the season. Players put very much effort and practice into football, working very hard.

Football involves teamwork, running, and ball handling. Teams and players work hard every week, so their game play can become stronger, this season has many goals and achievements waiting to hap- pen. With hard work and train- ing the football team can make this season as great as possible.
