Not only were senior football play- ers lost to graduation, but also were football managers, trainers, statisti- cians, and video people. They are the unsung heroes that people rarely see, but would be very much noticed if they were not around. Football managers are needed to help with the daily on-field work relat- ing directly to the game, working with equipment, helping coaches on field, and helping with on field game prepa- ration. Football trainers help with minor medical care in practice and games. This includes taping, helping care for minor injuries, assisting coaches with caring for more severe injuries, and keeping the medical kits in order. Statisticians do the game-by-game record keeping. This job is important as records are kept throughout the sea- son, reported to local media, and sent to the Little Sioux Conference. Accurate record keeping is very important. Video taping is very important in the evaluation of player performance. Seeing yourself on video helps in cor- recting mistakes.
