I’m getting better at getting up in the morning, having put on my pot of coffee at 445.
Tropical Storm Caludette proved to be ,much ado about nothing and provided little rain during the day and a nice breez throughout the afternoon. It was another pleasant day for our 5pm practice. I really like what we are doing by getting kids acclimated to what will prove to be significantly more heat at 230 when school begins next week. Our head coach is really good about getting done by 5 on school days so kids can get home for homework and to be with their families in the evening.
Two of our starting OLs returned yesterday to practice one from heta illness another a bruised shoulder. Getting them the time they needed made all the difference in the world.
We had one classic ATF Grade One sprain where a golf ball immediately appeared over the outside of the ankle right above the bone. If we were making a textbook, it would have been a good one for a photo opportunity. The player’s older brother played her too, so talking to his dad on the phone fairly straight forward. The familiarity that trainer’s have with the families of kids is unique and something that’s not paralleled in health care. High school trainers see their kids everyday. Some like me are also teachers and have additional avenues to establish realationships.
Just the varsity will lift weights in the morning. The rest of the day I’ll have the chance to work in my classroom. I’m trying to rearrange furniture this morning along with getting used to all the new paperwork they’ve decided to give us.
I’ll be teaching just Biology I to freshmen again. Most of my kids will be average to below average learners as advanced freshmen has signed up for Honors Biology, an intensive Biology for medical professionals or an AP Environmental class.
