The cost of obesity in America and how it affects the sports industry
The Fields of Green
The inactivity and obesity epidemic is upon us. A recent study by Sports Marketing Surveys, Inc., shows the percentage of Americans who are totally sedentary increased from 25 percent in 2007 to 28 percent in 2012 with the largest increase in inactivity being among children. This number is projected to balloon to more than 31 percent by 2018 and will represent a painful $28 billion reduction in sports and fitness retail consumption alone. Add this to the more than $190 billion already spent annually in the U.S. on obesity-related medical expenses and it is clear this is an issue we can no longer ignore.

High school coaches: Game changes; techniques remain
The News Star
Football sprung from the humblest of origins in the Northeast where Rutgers and Princeton knocked heads in the first game ever played in 1869. Primitive, sure, but anything worth note has to start somewhere. The sport mutated from an offbeat version of rugby into its current form thanks in large part to the way its popularity spread across the country. In the process, it became the preferred sport of those areas "in between" both coasts with each region putting a unique spin on the game.

As high school football season begins, coaches set aside their hobbies
The Wichita Eagle
Passion for coaching football is why first-year Augusta, Kansas, coach Jason Filbeck has invested scads of hours with his team for weights and conditioning, and with his coaches for meetings and contemplating the Orioles' depth chart. But football is a time and energy demand that sometimes requires a balance. Many coaches turn to golf as a competitive outlet, or focus on family time as a way to make up for late nights and long absences.

Build strength for baseball and softball speed
STACK
To get faster for baseball and softball, your first inclination may be to sprint around the bases. This is an effective way to increase your speed but only if you have a foundation of strength. Speed by definition is stride length multiplied by stride frequency. To increase these two factors, you need to build strength, stability and mobility around your joints. This allows you to put more force into the ground to propel your body forward and stride through a full range of motion. Plus, you decrease your risk of injury.
