The Silver Arrow
The Adventures of Superman Radio Serial - November

Cowboys and gangsters were always popular staples of adolescent entertainment, radio serials being no exception - but while the Superman radio show brimmed with the latter, it was a little sly on the former.

What does football mean to you? Do you play with family and friends? Do you enjoy watching it? Are you a former player who always wanted to go pro? No matter what, by reading this piece, you can understand your favorite sport much better.

You need to keep safety in mind when playing football. Stay safe no matter what you are doing. Use proper protective gear and procedures at all times.

The game of football has such an abundance of strategies and techniques that learning them all is probably impossible. Being a smart player can make up for your lack of strength and speed. Look to beat the opposition through mental strength over physical.

Participate as a supportive member of a team. Teamwork is crucial to a successful football team. Your team is going to enjoy wins and suffer losses together. Always think we, not I. With that in mind, being a supportive teammate is essential to building confidence in those around you. When the whole group is confident, then it seems winning comes a little easier.

You must be able to read the opposing team’s formation if you’re playing defense. The spot the receiver chooses for lining up should give you great insight about the play even before it starts. If the receiver lines up very wide, there is a good chance the play is a pass. Of course, this could be a decoy, but it leaves the offense with fewer blockers inside.

Whether is just a hobby or a career goal, the passion that you have for football should not be forgotten. Your game will improve if you learn more about it. Practice whenever possible, and soon you’ll see some major improvements in your abilities.
