Asking a high school football coach to â€śpreviewâ€ť his team during the final week of preseason practice is really premature. Itâ€™s at least a week too early for that. Besides, coaches only want to talk about known commodities. Sometimes it takes half of a season to figure out the identity of these embryonic football teams.
Coaches are always willing to talk about certain subjects: veteran players, team leaders, practice schedules, lack of depth on the roster â€¦ thereâ€™s a whole litany of subjects that coaches are dealing with as the summer begins to fade away.
