It’s a warm evening at Bellevue High School’s stadium, and a couple dozen players have donned pads, helmets and jerseys to practice tackling and blocking, and running offensive and defensive schemes.
They’re not members of Bellevue High’s nationally renowned program, which has captured 11 of the past 14 state championships. They’re young men who, for various reasons, aren’t playing college football but are looking to attract attention from coaches at that level.
