Tune in to the National High School Coaches Association Sports Hour
NHSCA
Tune in to the NHSCA Sports Hour on March 6 to hear host Jeff Fisher's chat with Henry Priest, who is a former East Los Angeles gang member who was able to escape the streets through high school wrestling. Priest has an inspirational story that goes beyond wrestling. He currently is a filmmaker in Hollywood. Olympic champ and legendary wrestling coach Dan Gable had this to say about him: "You should be given an award for the things you do to represent our sport in Hollywood."

You can listen to the NHSCA Sports Hour every Thursday night at 6 p.m. EST at www.artistfirst.com/nhsca.htm.

NHSCA
Twenty-five years ago, National High School Coaches Association founder Bob Ferraro Sr. had a dream — bring together all of the nation's senior high school state wrestling champs. "The day we left Lewisburg, Pennsylvania for the championships in the western part of the state, we had only 51 wrestlers registered," said Ferraro, who at the time of the first national championships was the head wrestling coach at Bucknell University.

The Other Side of the Lens: Offseason video work
High School Football America
In today's insanely fast-paced world, football season seems to go by in the blink of an eye. Starting with summer camp in July, it's full bore until November/December brings on the state championship games. Warp-speed is the nature of our sport, but intense focus at season start is what makes or breaks a team.

Social media a growing concern in high school athletics
The Times of Northwest Indiana
Two years ago while conducting tryouts, Lake Central baseball coach Jeff Sandor told players they would have to make a sacrifice to be on the team, and it had nothing to do with bunting. "We had some big-time, Type-A personalities," Sandor said. "If they were going to go on this ride, they couldn't have Twitter." Talk about a pre-emptive strike.

The longest current high school baseball winning streaks in America
MaxPreps
Pensacola Catholic in Florida is the defending MaxPreps Xcellent 25 National Champion, and it is the winner of two consecutive state championships with an undefeated season in 2013. However, the team doesn't have the longest high school baseball win streak in the nation. That honor goes to Magnolia Heights in Senatobia, Miss., which won its last four games of the 2012 season and posted the nation's best record last year with a 38-0 mark while winning a Mississippi Association of Independent Schools state title.

Why you should consider post-grad prep school for football
STACK
You're a football player whose senior year of high school is drawing to an end, and you're planning to head off to college. But before you finalize your plans, think about this.

Transition to college tests athletes' patience, mental toughness
The Stanford Daily
While high school student-athletes certainly dedicate a lot of time and energy to refining their craft, the collegiate lifestyle brings a new level of challenge that many incoming freshmen can find daunting and overwhelming at first. In addition to being under much more pressure to perform on a bigger, more exposed stage in front of a national audience, they must also deal with the challenges that regular college freshmen face: making friends, settling into a community and creating a niche in an unfamiliar setting.

$60 million Texas high school stadium closed
ESPN
A $60 million Texas high school stadium that got national attention for its grandeur and price tag will be shut down indefinitely 18 months after its opening, school district officials said. Eagle Stadium in the Dallas suburb of Allen will be closed until at least June for an examination of "extensive cracking" in the concrete of the stadium's concourse, the district said in a statement. The closure will likely affect home games at the stadium this fall.

Indiana bill would require football concussion education
Journal and Courier
Indiana is on the verge of becoming the first state to require concussion-awareness training for high school and youth football coaches — despite questions about its need and financial motives. A bill requiring the training — as well as mandating a 24-hour waiting period before players suffering a concussion can return to the field — overwhelmingly passed the Senate and is eligible for a final vote in the House of Representatives.
