Achilles Injuries

September 22, 2014
By

Why are there so many Achilles tendon injuries?  I have noticed that Achilles injuries occur at least 2 to 3 times per week in pro sports.  I looked up some information that might explain these injuries.

Do you get upset when your favorite night time shows are delayed, or in some cases cancelled, because a sporting event goes long past its allotted time?  I noticed that 60 Minutes on Sunday is now scheduled one half hour later so that NFL Football can have extra time.  They still don’t seem to...

Too Many Penalties

September 15, 2014
By

I was watching the pro game on TV last Thursday.  There were at least 5 personal foul calls in the short time I had the game on.  I know there is a tremendous effort to cut down on injuries, especially concussions, but I think they have gone overboard in the name of safety. Four...

Most coaches with that kind of...

The Oldenburg Academy football team is in its second season.  Wes Gillman and his staff already have two wins to their credit since the program began.  Though this might seem to be a low number, this is quite an accomplishment when you are beginning a new program in a 1A school.  Add to this...
