On this edition of High School Football America, Jeff Fisher talks with Jason Strunk, head coach of Lubbock High School in Texas. Strunk is writing a daily blog for High School Football America that takes our readers inside his program, which hasn’t had a winning season since the mid 70s and is currently on a 23-game losing streak. The season-long feature is called The Turnaround.
Fisher then talks with authors Joe Drape and Drew Jubera about their new books.
Drape latest offering is called Soldiers First, Duty, Honor, Country and Football about Army football at West Point. Jubera spent a year embedded at Valdosta High School in Georgia to write Must Win, a Season of Survival for a Town and its Team. Valdosta is America’s winningest high school football program.
The show closes with Shane Tripucka, one of the top punters in America. Tripucka plays for Allen High School in Texas. On the show Shane talks about last week’s opening of his school’s $60 million dollar stadium, plus the recruiting process for a punter.
