Track is much better for Football Players in the Spring than Spring Football. Throwing the weights is perfect to build power, quickness and balance. I have a relative that is a HS football coach and he hates the Spring Football scene. Players are getting questionable coaching, paying fees that are not warranted when they should be building strength and speed in the track program.
They had a kid recently graduated from Akron that is a FA Seattle- went back to his High School and told the team he wished he would have participated in track in High School. His eyes were opened when he worked out with the track team in preparation for his Pro Day saw major improvement in his speed numbers in one month.
