It’s that time again and it just seemed like yesterday we were starting summer practice. High school football playoffs are off and rolling and we end another year of sports which moves so fast. Seniors for the most part, face the end of their playing careers, others continue to dream. Time for the aches and pains neglected to rest and heal. Recovery is playing a more important role with elite athletes these days. Cryotherapy tanks are being used to heal tissue and intermittent extremity pumps are being utilized by more and more to gain an edge. Will they last, and real evidence be produced or will they be another trend or fad? Time will tell and time moves on, standing still for none. Time to put the equipment away and prepare for the future or as i’ve been fortunate to do… advance in the playoffs towards another possible state football championship. Living the dream.
