Kenny Chesney's Real Life Lessons For The Boys Of Fall
Rocks Off found out last week that country singer Kenny Chesney is offering free DVD copies of his high school football documentary The Boys of Fall to any schools or coaches who might be interested. If you want to buy it, it's only available at Walmart. From the email:
In the documentary, Chesney interviews dozens of football's most successful commentators, coaches and players, including Joe Namath, Peyton Manning, Tony Dungy and Nick Saban, but the focus of the film is truly on life lessons learned by all who participate, not just those who go on to future football success.
"Kenny played high school football, and he feels the lessons learned on the field like hard work, humility and trust are carried over into everyday life," says Chesney's manager Clint Higham. "He wants to help inspire future generations with the same passion he feels."
Now, now...Kenny's being modest. Why, Rocks Off has learned so many more lessons just by watching him in his successful country-music career, we just had to share them with all of you.
If You Can't Beat It, Steal It
Football is often about adopting your opponent's tactics to your own game plan, which is one reason for the continued popularity of the spread offense, or the explosion of teams using the "wildcat" formation last year. This might also explain why Chesney decided to ape Jimmy Buffett 's adult-contemporary beach sound on Lucky Old Sun.
