FootballScoop's most read articles of 2016

As we turn the page from 2016 to 2017 officially, I thought it would be fun to take a look back at our most read articles from the last calendar year.

Combined, the ten articles below easily eclipse the 1 million views mark and range from serious topics like Dabo explaining America's "sin problem," to the importance of high school football, to some fun and informative articles as part of our new #TheTimeout series on topics like signs you've found the ideal coach's wife, life lessons you learn playing the offensive line, and some things college coaches want high school players to understand about playing at the next level.

As the page turns to 2017, we're excited to continue to roll out thoughtful, engaging, and timely content for our loyal viewers (as well as attracting new ones), and continuing to build on the site that coaches, and fans come to daily for their football fix.
