We go a little sideways on this edition of the High School Football America Radio Show with a wide array of guests that cover Hollywood to the hometown of Nike to professional wrestling.

The show kicks-off with host Jeff Fisher talking with Aloha High School (Oregon) head football coach Chris Casey talking about the incredible performance by his running back Thomas Tyner last Friday.  Tyner, who has given his verbal commitment to the University of Oregon, rushed for 643 yards and 10 TDs.  Tyner’s total landed him third in the all-time national record book for rushing yards in a single-game.

Then Trish Hoffman interviews Jonathan Bray as part of her Inspired segment that highlights professionals who have used high school sports as a springboard for a successful career outside of high school sports.  Bray, who played football at Natick High School in Massachusetts, was awarded an “LA Scenie” for his portrayal of the character “Jack” in Sideways the Play.

The show closes with Chris Nowinski, co-founder of the Sports Legacy Insitute.  Nowinski, who played college football at Harvard and went on to a success career as a professional wrestler in the WWE, is shining a light on the problem with sports concussions through his book Head Games that has been made into a movie that is directed by Steve James of Hoop Dreams.
