Hi, I’m Ryan McCann, and I’m going to talk
to you about how to prepare for a football game like a pro. Usually, the week up until
it’s going to have some intense practice. Usually, two days of contact. Usually, Tuesday,
Wednesday. Thursday, is usually just shoulder pads and helmets. Friday, say we’re playing
a Saturday game. Friday is going to be just kind of a walk through really let-let all
the players rest. The night before you’ll have a good meal, get plenty of sleep, wake
up the next day and have a good, you know, a good breakfast, and the last meal you’ll
eat before the game is four hours and that way you’ll be energized and ready to jam come
kick off. A good meal consist of, you know, some chicken, some fish, some mashed potatoes;
nothing too heavy or starchy. You know, either, one potato or maybe some veggies, but some
good nutritious foods. Some; definitely get hydrated, a lot of Gatorade and water. Day
of, a lot of liquids, not a whole lot of carbs, but you want to have some, you know, some
good cereal, some good fruits, maybe a little oatmeal, some orange juice and drink a lot
of liquids because it’s a hot day you’re going to be sweating. After you eat, you’ll have
some meetings to talk about last minute game plan stuff. Make sure everybody knows what
they’re doing. You head to the stadium, get taped, you know, get any treatment on any
injuries that you have to prepare you to play for the game and then you’ll start to loosen
up. Go out there run a few plays before the game and get pumped to go play.
