Teaching your coaches — young and old
By Edwin McIntyre
Every coach takes pride in coaching and preparing his team. Most coaches spend inordinate amounts of time preparing their players for a game or a season. However, how many coaches really take the time to coach or prepare their fellow coaches? Some famous coaches have reputations for being extremely difficult to work with. On the other hand, some coaches have reputations for being excellent teachers to both their players and fellow coaches. These coaches make other coaches want to readily work with them.

Firm insures high school athletes with college scholarship offers
Orange County Register
As Zach Pickett approached his junior year of high school, Tod Pickett had invested untold thousands into his son's swim and water polo career.

Then the 16-year-old finished a lifeguard shift at a lake and dived into the water, making contact with an unseen sandbar, breaking his seventh vertebrae and becoming paralyzed from the waist down. That's where Education Protector, or EdPro, came in. It's a company that offers a flat-rate insurance covering the cost of a college education to high school athletes with scholarship offers who sustain injuries.

Democrat & Chronicle
VideoBrief Technology and smartphones have changed the way we live, but they're also changing the way high school coaches coach.

Virtual reality experience comes to high school football
USA Today
A 90-inch screen inside a team meeting room at Byrnes High in Duncan, South Carolina, displayed what junior quarterback and wide receiver Micah Young described as a Madden video game. Young wore a head-mounted piece of equipment as he moved his head left and right. From the outside, it might have looked like a 5-10, 160-pound player shaking his head. But to Young, he was scanning the field — virtually. The tool, he said, has helped him learn how to read defensive schemes to be better prepared when he steps onto the actual field.

How an Illinois farm community came together to help one of its own
Yahoo Sports
After Hayden Schaumburg, a football player at Illinois' Watseka High, was injured in a game, he needed eight hours of surgery. He had broken his neck. With the Schaumburgs still by their son Hayden's side at Loyola Medical Center, their farm back home sat waiting to be harvested. And so, before dawn on the first day of November, more than 100 people arrived at the Schaumburg farm. Some came with tractors, some with auger carts, some with semis ready to load. Some brought lunch, some brought bright yellow safety vests, and some just came with their bare hands and their time.
