3 Keys to Winning the Fall Bass Fishing Game

By: Lynn Burkhead,

Sitting in the bleachers recently with my youngest son, Will, a couple of local high school football teams played four spirited quarters in front of an overflow crowd, all basking under those Friday Night Lights that Texas is famous for.

Before the night's contest was over, the winning Pottsboro Cardinals had put on a display of what it takes to win the three phases that exist in every football game: offense, defense and special teams.

From stellar quarterback and receiver play, a stingy defense that stuffed the run and avoided giving up any big pass plays and a special teams unit that constantly gave the home team the edge in field position, the result was a big victory for the Cardinals.
