For approximately fifteen years, it has been my privilege to serve as “Color Commentator” for high school football broadcasts over a very powerful FM radio station. During that period of time, I have helped broadcast close to two hundred football games.

I have discovered or rediscovered many truths about team work, persistence, the capacity to win, the ability to lose, our tendency to allow concentration to fade and our amazing penchant for focusing. I have found one concept that possesses tremendous tutorial benefit for those persons seeking to make significant strides in the art of replenishment.

Most teams refer to this concept as “the two-minute drill.” Basically, the two-minute drill is a procedure that teams routinely practice in order to be most aggressive and offensive in the last two minutes of the first half and in the last two minutes of the second half. The two-minute drill is crucial to the team who is behind in the score. It is my understanding that football teams on almost every level feel that this procedure should be taken seriously. It is my observation that the proof is in the points. The procedure works.
