The mental training of the candidates for the football team is as important as the cultivation of the physical side of the men. This must not be neglected, although it is often completely lost sight of. There should be some especial drill for those who learn slowly. The coach and trainer will be called upon to devise many different ways to impress certain facts on the different individuals. Each man will be impressed in a different manner. No two men can be told in exactly the same way with the desired result. The players must improve each day in their knowledge of the game, for at most there are but about ten weeks to learn the lessons that must be taught, and the time is too short for a leisurely course.
