SURVEY In January, the NFHS and the NFL hired a senior consultant for high school football to lead the partnership between the NFHS and the NFL. A primary focus on this position is working with football stakeholders across the country to gain a better understanding of the participation and perception trends in high school football. To that end, the NFHS has partnered with UpMetrics to conduct a national research project, which involves the surveying of administrators, athletic directors, coaches, athletes, parents and officials about their experiences in football and the benefits of participation. Please take approx. 3 minutes to complete the survey at the link provided below. Thank you. Your opinions are valued! - Steve
