High school football can be very physically and mentally challenging for players and coaches. After all, the season begins in the early summer with preseason workouts and doesn’t usually end until late November or December after the playoffs.
And because of that, sometimes everyone needs a break. The Glasgow Scotties are coming off a bye week and head coach Rick Wood thinks that break, those few days off, may have a big impact on the Scotties.
“We feel good about how we handled the week off. We took a couple of days off and it seemed like we came back refreshed physically and mentally,” Wood relayed. “The one thing our staff is reminding our team is that we don’t feel like we’ve played our best football yet and that’s a good feeling. We’ve got some good football ahead.
“I think the week off really freshened us up, not only physically but also mentally. Right before the fall break, not only were we beat up physically, after the Monroe County and Somerset games in particular, we were really tired mentally. It is such a big mental strain when you have so many new starters trying to learn everything. I think we’re just a new football team. We’re settling into it, and I think our best football is ahead of us.”
