Anyone here have a certain pregame ritual they always take part

under my longer game socks i always wear and extra pair. One game when I was in 7th grade i asked my sister to walk over to the school and give me a pair of socks. since she was only 10 then she gave me a pair of fuzzy purple ones "because they were cute". I had no choice but to wear them. So in that game I tied my middle schools record with 3 sacks in one game. 14 games later, i still wear them in every game i play, and have actually not lost a single game since then.

As far as pregame rituals, after i have my pads on i sit in the shower with my best friend (no homo) and we play the team hype tape the coaches make every year. Then all the lineman we say the lineman's prayer after all the recievers/backs have left the lockerroom, then we proceed to scream for the next few minutes about how great we are and how were the best and then we go do work.

I don't have one for football but before basketball games I will just put my right shoe on first but tie my left one before my right. I also always wear my boxers under my compression shorts.

yea its what i do, this doesnt count as a pregame ritual but during a game instead of making noise by smack our pads when the other team is on offense (so they dont hear the count) we scream 'YESSSAAAAAAAA" or 'HOOORAAAHH'

We do this thing called BREAKDOWN

someone, usually one of the captains screams "BREAKDOWN" in the middle of the circle of all of the players. Then we start hitting our pads twice and then clap once for our beat. then we get into the middle and start screaming our heads off.

Pre game well right before it, we all circle up say a prayer to make sure no one gets hurts. Once thats done everyone stands up Coach yells out what time is it! we say Game time, same thing over and over, then we start to jump around hit each other, coach yells again any dogs in the house we woof at it hitting each other harder , break it down and run out and start doing what we got to do. (just writing it makes me pumped).

We also honored are games to weird things, like a Seagal Energy drink, Chuck Norris, A teammates lil bro, a Bug.

After the meal I immediately go to the upstairs bathroom as soon as the janitor gets done cleaning and take a ****. Then I always take nap before the game. Last year we played rock, paper, scissors tourney before every game to see who was the "president" for the week. corny **** but we were bored riding the bench on fridays as sophmores.

Not to many pre-game rituals anymore...

I got so that I made the sign of the cross before almost every play, yes I am Catholic (much like Catholic baseball players do)
In 8th grade, I always tried to get teh team to say The Lord's Prayer, in the corner of the field, right before we started warming-up...

I gotta start getting more rituals...But going 1-9 freshman year doesn't breed to many succesful rituals :p

yeah i'd always be like that. i would just sit alone not talk to anyone and wasn't really pumped. i would be nervous as hell and would always be thinking to myself "i hope their team isn't huge." or "i wonder how big/strong these kids will be"

then right after kickoff i get pumpedup, start screaming and going all out

i dont worry about how big or strong. i see the film. im just nervous about my performance..i wonder if i'll screw up..will i do my job. im confident i will but i get nervous anyways..adrenaline rush for the game. i love to play, i love football and competing.

I just talk alot, run my mouth alot during warm-ups and stay loose and calm.... I'm the type of person that is talking all game so when I start off on a good note by being loose it helps me play better.... No point in being scared, etc...... You believe in yourself, you dont need an edge with music, etc. NOt saying I dont listen to music pre-game but it doesnt help my performance IMO

I'm Catholic too and I do the sign of the cross alot. Before my 100, 200 and 4x100 races in track I would do the sign of the cross like 15 times just cause it would help me calm down. I also bless the right shoulder of every Catholic kid on our team (if your not Catholic you probably won't understand that) and most of the non Catholic kids. I always made two crosses, one under each eye paint streak.

taking a crap isnt just a pregame thing for me

everyday the coach opens the lockeroom at 2:15, practice starts at 2:50

ive taken a **** everyday in that lockeroom with my best friends doing the same in the stall next to me

big men have the best traditions
