My ds is a freshman and played football this year. Well, the sophomore coach sent them all a message that they are expected in the weight room Monday -Thursday at 6:20 am!! Glad we live close do I don't have to take him. You don't even get out if your playing another sport!!! Ds will start lacrosse soon too. Ds it was kind of fun.

They are very intense. Ds is going to ask that on Thursdays, once lax starts, if he can't skip. He has jazz band and he won't get home until 9 pm!!

I think they do it all the time.!! A bit nutty if you ask me. The football program is rated #20 in the nation, so I guess this is part of the reason.

Sounds like they take football very seriously!  Best of luck to your DS!  Sounds like it would be exhausting!

He has Bern good with school work, so let's hope he can.

Wow. Long hours! Is that just during off season or will he be doing that during regular season as well? That's quite a commitment!

Wow, that's a commitment.  At least it will help keep him strong for lacrosse, but that's a very early morning for him.  Does he have problems keeping up on his schoolwork?
