  • The smell of fresh cut grass and leather is in the air.  It is once again football season and the lights at the high school stay on a little later, now that Friday nights are here. 

    Saturday mornings offer up ESPN’s College Gameday and many people watch the pregame show with anticipation as another football season is unraveling. A fan of the gridiron can find a game on TV just about any day of the week now.  Football is everywhere.

    As a former footballer myself, I find it interesting, how rapidly the game is changing and evolving.
