SHERIDAN HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL - Yesterday we began our series with former Wyoming All-Mountain West linebacker Ward Dobbs. Dobbs is running the Sheridan high school off season training program. He graduated from UW and did his student teaching this spring at Sheridan high school.
Dobbs brings a wealth of training knowledge to the program and from his in his high school days in Alaska learned that the hard work pays off for athletes wanting to advance to play their sports in college.
In the first three weeks of the off season the players are showing up for one of three daily sessions and Dobbs says they are working hard.
And he stresses the importance of a good off-season program for continued success on the field during the season.
Sheridan high school ranks 8th out of 10 4-A schools in enrollment and face much bigger schools in all sports and especially football where numbers mean a lot.
In 2009 the Broncs showed that a good off-season program can be the tipping factor in success with an 11 game winning streak and a state title.
Ward says it's not always he size of school it's the players that are faster,stronger and prepared that ultimately will be successful.
