football cards


In this page are some things I do with my cards that you can do to. Here are some ideas for the storage of your cards.

Velveeta cheese box: the bottom of this cheese box is perfect for holding cards, So the next time you have Velveeta cheese save the bottom of the box.

Rubber bands: any rubber bands will work but I prefer thicker ones so you can write whats inside such as the poisition and team. Make sure you do not bend the corners while putting the cards in the rubber bands.

Shoe boxes: any box will work but I think shoe boxes work the best. I also like to put sets of my rubber banded cards cards in the boxes.

stretch time!

Hi There,

Stretching is very important. You should do it before every practice and game. Here are some stretches you can do by your self. Touch your toes: bend over while keeping your legs strait, and touch your toes. Hold for a count of ten. Hurdler: sit on your butt and cross your right leg over the left while at the same time you are twisting your body and head at a 90 degres. Do it the other way. Hold for a count of ten. Butterfly: sit on your butt and bring your feet in close to your body while keeping them together. While keeping your hands on your feet stretch your legs as far down as you can. Hold for a count of ten. Pull your wheel: sit on your butt and pull one leg so its by your butt, but don't sit on it, and one forward and flat. Lean backwards so your laying on your back, but keep your legs where they where. Then reverse. Hold for a count of ten.

Football Conditioning


If you like football just as much as I do, these drills should be done often. First, set up two cones 10 yards apart. Then start at one end in a shuffling position with your butt down, hands up, and feet wide apart (but make sure it does not hurt.) Shuffle from one cone to the other and back to where you started. Then do the same with the crossover (some people call it the kareoke) and the backpedal. Once your done with that move one cone five yards farther out so the cones are now fifteen yards apart. Then sprint from one cone to the other and back.
