School of 550 or so in southeast Iowa: 34 total today, which is actually a few more than I expected, sadly. Despite that, there are three kids who I thought may play that weren't here today, so I would say 37 is our top end.

By comparison, West Hancock--right across the river from us in Hamilton, IL--is about 2/3 our size and they have 65 out, 27 of which are freshmen.

On topic, we have one small, but talented junior class that is holding our numbers down. We are not quite going to make 80 players this season. Which, is down for us.

Had a news reporter call me and ask about numbers being down across the area in central Illinois. He is one of our former players and a really great guy - so, I don't mind speaking with him. Wink

I told him I do not think concussion is a huge factor in kids not going out. For our school, it is more kids are not doing athletics or concentrating on one sport - thanks to DaddyBall and the Youth Sports Industrial Complex.

I did some more research using National Federation and numbers are really not down very much at all. Football is the number one participation sport in the country. Some states are losing some football players, while others are gaining. Examples: New England, Illinois, and California have had drops in numbers, but in the south and west football numbers are up. Overall, the percentage has gone down slightly the last couple of years.

Here is why I can at least partially dismiss the concussion discussion: Participation percentage and numbers are higher, by a fair margin, than they were in 1979-1980.

Numbers declined from 2008-2012, but jumped back up in 2013-2014. In other words, it has fluctuated. As a percentage of students in high school football has remained remarkably consistent the last 20 years. There is tremendous variation based on region, but not really nationally.

Interestingly, the sport that has taken a real hit in numbers is basketball. It actually passed football in pure numbers for a period of three years (remember boys and girls both play). However, basketball numbers have declined sharply the last five years - largely, because of girls' numbers. Why isn't anybody talking about the nature of the sport of basketball being the reason for the decline? Wink

If you are interested in looking at the numbers yourself here is a link to the extensive NFHS participation surveys data:

Yikes.

At least your docs are aware of it and you are receiving treatment. Better than not knowing and having a heart attack be the event that clues you in.

Pay attention to your body, take care of yourself, and do what you're told. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

To clarify- I thought he was joking about not having been to practice. Not health issues.

Holy crap!  Just spun on to Turks for the first time in a couple weeks and see this... Stay strong, Amigo!  You know the love ya got!

On another note our program has the best numbers it has had in it's history this year... we have 15 seniors, 10 juniors, 9 sophs, and 16 freshmen, including Lil' Horse as he rides into MCHS...

...And yes, I'm making my return to the sidelines at Morris Community High School this year!  But it is in futbol, not football.  Wish me luck... I'm really, really out of my depth!  LOL!
