According to a USA Today High School Sports study, 29 of the first 32 players selected in this year’s NFL Draft were multi-sport athletes, a trend that one local coach is happy to see. The study further mentions that the most common other sport besides football was track and field with 22 of the 29 athletes having participated in the sport. Neil Seering, assistant football coach and head coach of the track and field team at Luxemburg-Casco says that doing multiple sports trains the body in different ways to prevent injuries and gives experience how to handle different situations.
Seering also commends the multi-sport athletes he sees every day for how they handle their schedule on and off the field. Luxemburg-Casco travels to Marinette on Tuesday for its next meet.
