Ken & Chris Talk Texas High School Football
brought to you by Lone Star Gridiron
The AUTHORITY on Texas High School Football! ™
Each week LSG founder, Chris Doelle and Coach Ken Purcell sit down and discuss the action across the state as well as the beliefs that have made the two friends and co-authors of the soon-to-be-released book All I Need to Know I Learned From My Texas High School Football Coach: A handbook of wisdom for parents, young people and yes, even coaches! (preorders are available here)
Tune in each week during the football season for analysis on the teams and athletes and also some insight into what makes Texas high school football so great.
This week, Ken and Chris talk about:
- The playoffs start this week and it is a different mindset
- Bringing kids up to the varsity level and the ramifications of that
- How to deal with the shock and awe of playing in a big venue
- A little bit about the upcoming book
- The values taught in Texas high school football carry on throughout a young man's life
- Is home field advantage just too big an advantage?
- A look ahead at some of the great games coming up this week
