No One Trick Ponies

When the two state ranked powers Mansfield Lake Ridge and Lancaster take the field next weekend, expect a good to great game. Lake Ridge Football only dates back to 2012, but it’s a program that has come on as of late with a near title last year while posting a 15-1 record (amazing run in playoffs averaging 61 points per game prior to championship game loss.).  Of course bedroom-community Lancaster has a rich history of athletic accomplishments in multiple sports and a history of football dating back to 1919.

These young men put in lots of baseball related hours each year as suggested should be the case if one wants to master his craft per author Malcolm Gladwell of the seminal book, Outliers.

His name is Justin Williams. He’s good, but he still hasn’t surpassed Single-A ball. This leads me into my next statement.
