Coach Michael Srock, in charge of strength and conditioning for the Byrnes High School team in Duncan, South Carolina, has an interesting idea for what you need to have your players ingesting during the halftime break of your football game.
It must be working, Byrnes is ranked #2 in the nation and they will travel to play #1 St. Thomas Aquinas from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida this Friday night and the game will be shown nationally on ESPNU.
Byrnes was leading Gaffey, S.C., 46-0 at halftime last Friday night and they went on to finish off Gaffney, 60-7……
Here’s what Coach Srock told his men/boys to load up on at the half:
During the break, at Srock’s command, the Byrnes players each downed one quarter of an apple, one quarter of a banana, exactly two Fig Newtons and a heavily salted sports drink.
“That gives them just what they need to take them through the rest of the game,” Srock said.
