How this New York high school football team found the perfect formula to win
By Kyle Madden
Published: November/December 2010

Our football team of Half Hollow Hills West in Dix Hills, New York, has had our share of success since 2000. Prior to 2009 we’d been to the playoffs six times and made two trips to the County Championship game. Good, yes, but we wanted to be great – we wanted to be remembered.

We always started strong but came up short at the end of the season. We’ve had some outstanding athletes (former Colt Stephen Bowen currently plays for the Dallas Cowboys), but as a team we seemed to get overpowered in the big games. It was clear that Hills West needed to do something to take our program to the next level.

After the 2008 season, our coaching staff, led by defensive coordinator and strength and conditioning coach Justin Snyder, turned to BFS. Coach Snyder worked tirelessly to sell the BFS program to the players and convinced them to believe in the system. This was a challenge, because BFS was different from any type of weightlifting that the kids had ever done. But our kids agreed to give it a shot, so we taught them the system and implemented the Beat the Computer program to help our players set daily goals. It worked, and soon players were consistently breaking over ten records per week!
