In observing today's football coaching techniques on the high school level, I have noticed that some coaches try to follow college and even pro football coaches' sophisticated methods such as elaborate signals, multitude of plays, etc. It seems to me that on the high school level, the "KISS" (Keep it Simple Stupid) technique should only be as sophisticated as the boys who are new to the game. Fancy signals, etc., which are confusing to say the least, just add unnecessary stress.
With this in mind, I am introducing a straightforward approach; based on sound plays, sound fundamentals, hard workouts, discipline and repetition so that each player has an automatic response under game conditions.
Fashion and celebrity may be twenty-first century obsessions, but they were also key concepts in Regency culture. Both celebrated and condemned for their popularity, silver fork novels were extremely prolific during this period. These texts detailed the lives and loves of London fashionables and in doing so became a form of conduct book, offering guidelines for members of the socially aspirant middle class. Wilson looks at the social and literary impact of this significant genre and charts its role in the development of the novel as a form and its status in the literary marketplace.
