Sports Talk with Charles Ramsey
District play is underway! We love hearing from our favorite area high school football coaches during the non-district part of the season because the philosophies always cover a wide range of opinions. Does it work better to play the toughest of the tough and get your team ready for a possible district schedule that is less competitive? Do you schedule teams that are weaker so your team (possibly a younger squad) gains confidence? Do you even have a real idea who will be a powerhouse when schedules are made?
Well, I am here to tell you the correct answer is all of the above. Balance is obviously a key point, but gauging your team against a more talented team can help as well as getting a feel for what a team’s strengths and weaknesses look like against top flight competition. Yet, even in college football it is nice to be done by halftime and let underclassmen or reserve players get playing time in a victory.
I will be keenly interested to see how District 6 of 2A Division II plays out because honestly I believe pre-season predictions might go completely by the wayside. Let’s hope so because I love the unpredictability.
