Being a Football Manager

By Elizabeth Field

As a manager for the GVHS football team, I go to football practice everyday after school with the exception of Mondays. The other managers and I are not just the “water-boys/girls”; we do so much more than that. The managerial football team is what we like to call the parents of the football players and coaches. We make sure the players have all of their supplies, ensure their helmets and gear are fixed, and make them stay hydrated and organized. Cleaning up after the practices is a whole other challenge. The managerial team allows football practices and games to run more efficiently. Though we aren’t paid, we all consider it a job which we take very seriously. We all love managing the football team, even if it is sometimes stressful.
