Ripley High School Varsity Football Coaches
This photo was taken on 8-6-2013 during the team photo session. It was not planned nor posed. I turned around and snapped the photo you see here with a little photoshop magic throwned in. For those of you that do not know the gentleman in the photo his name is Clint Spidle also known as "Father Time". He is the football announcer for HRL TV and he does a fine job. I have gotten to know him over the last few years and he is a great guy. He has a passion for football and comes from a 35 year career in radio broadcasting. He has brought a very professional attitude and feel to the RHS football broadcast. If you see him out and about, stop and say hello.
Major Benefits of playing high school sports.
1. Representing a community: when you play for your high school you are representing the community in which you live. You will participate against other communities and enjoy the sporting rivalries that have developed over numerous generations. This is just like college – playing other colleges that have traditional rivalries and representing your college, and the community in which it is part, is a great honor.
2. Recognition for your achievements: Local newspapers thrive on sport coverage of their local high schools and your achievements will not go unnoticed. This is just like college – local papers love to cover the sporting events of the local colleges and you will be recognized for your individual and team successes.
3. Understanding the sporting hierarchy: As a freshman you have certain duties, as do the sophomores, juniors and seniors. These duties change when you get older - from collecting equipment to leading the program. This is just like college – you will have certain duties and expectations as a freshman and these duties and expectations will change as you mature to lead your program.
4. Development of leadership roles: In high school sports players tend to look towards the older and more experienced athletes for guidance and leadership. As you stay with the program you will assume these roles and duties and you will learn how best to lead. You will also develop an understanding of which leadership qualities and styles best suit you. This is just like college – your leadership skills will be expected to develop as you mature through the program and you will have older, more experienced, teammates to look up to when you are an underclassman.
5. The opportunity to work with different coaches: Playing for different coaches prior to participating in college will allow you to know how to adapt to various coaching styles and how best you can succeed with these different styles. Although this is not the same as college, playing for different coaches will prepare you to know how best to work within different coaching styles and philosophies and still get the best out of your game.
Being exposed to club and high school sports will help you develop yourself as an athlete and leader and expose you to various roles that will allow you to succeed further in college. Be aware of burnout and find time to get rest but enjoy the experience of being a youth athlete in all environments
