SH: sports management/sociology


FootyPromo:  Are there any major differences in football at your college and football here in Bermuda?
SH:   I would say the biggest differences are fitness, discipline, and the game is much more physical. teams don't stop running. its also very tough because we play games back to back, ex. game Saturday, game Sunday.
 
FootyPromo: What would you say to any player looking to play football in college?
SH: I would say to focus in school, and do your extras. its great to go away to college and play ball, and if you are good enough and your grades are up to par then you can be eligible for a scholarship, which is a big relief.
