Tune in to the National High School Coaches Association Sports Hour
On the February 13 edition of the NHSCA Sports Hour, host Jeff Fisher talks with Dave Dean, the head coach of the Lowell High School wrestling team in Michigan. Dean has built the program into one of the best in the nation in nine years as the head coach of the Red Arrows. Currently, Lowell is the top-ranked team in Division II in Michigan, while being ranked #14 by The Amateur Wrestling News and #17 by Win Magazine. Because of his incredible leadership and outstanding service to his community, Dean is being honored as the 2014 National High School Coaches Association National Wrestling Coach of the Year. Fisher and Dean will discuss that honor, plus cover a wide range of topics from the youth level of the wrestle right through college, where his son Gabe wrestles as a freshman for Cornell. Earlier this year, the 189-pound Dean shocked the wrestling world by beating two-time defending NCAA champ Ed Ruth of Penn St. Ruth had won 84 straight matches before his loss to Dean. Also on the show, Fisher will take a look back at the latest high school boys and girls' basketball rankings. Tune into the NHSCA Sports Hour every Thursday night at 6 p.p. EST on the ArtistFirst Radio Network. You can listen LIVE at

Indianapolis Public schools pushed to open sports teams to outsiders
Dimitri and Wyatt Taylor hope to go out for sports at their local high school when they enter the ninth grade this fall. It may take legislative action to allow them to compete. The twins from Johnson County, Ind., attend a publicly funded "virtual" charter school with no sports program of its own. They're counting on H.B. 1047, which would compel 408 schools that belong to the Indiana High School Athletic Association to open their sports programs to about 6,000 students enrolled in the web-based schools.

You're doing it wrong: The muscle-building diet
Imagine this: Two athletes perform the same workout in preparation for the upcoming season. Both are relatively skinny but athletic, and they go on a muscle building diet. A month goes by: They eat the same foods, get adequate rest and put 100 percent into every workout. One of the athletes gets bigger, faster and stronger. The other barely notices any improvement. What gives? Although both athletes may have eaten the right foods, one may not have eaten the right amount.

Anatomy, treatment and rehab for a biceps tendon injury
Shoulder pain from an injury to the long head of the biceps tendon is a common condition that affects many competitive athletes each season.
