NHSCA
The top three teams in the first in-season High School Football America Top 25 have been very impressive early on in 2014.

By Danielle Wegert
Michael Brown, an unarmed 18-year-old man, was shot and killed by a police officer on Aug. 9 in Ferguson, Missouri.

The coaches in Ferguson were determined to keep the events happening all around them from stopping their game. Not only were the coaches wanting to prepare for the season, but they were also trying to bring some sense of normalcy to the players.
