If a high school kid is serious about football and plays any position other than place kicker, wouldn't they be best served by doing a pure strength program for a few months to begin the off season? I've met very few 16 year old football players who couldn't stand to gain 20 pounds of muscle.

It looks like the amateur version of CFFB is similar to SS, but with lower lift volume, back to back lifting days, and extra met cons to maintain conditioning. Why not just do starting strength for a few months and then when spring football practice picks back up, start upping the conditioning.
