    If you are getting high reps on dips and Pull ups you can do weighted at 5's or 8's to add additional strength.

    I don't think the shoulder raises and the flies are necesicary. Also, make sure you change the exercises every 6-8 weeks and the reps every 3-4 weeks so you don't plateau. Day 4 sounds like it would be pretty hard on your lower back. You may not feel it now but when you're older you might.

    Over all, your program is pretty good. At least you have lots of posterior chain work, which is usually neglected by high school athletes. However, I agree with ValleyFR. DeFranco's program is better than any program you or I can come up with.

    One last thing. Make sure you're eating healthy: keep the junk to a minimum and take pre and post workout protein shakes. I consume 16g of protein and 32g of carbs 15 minutes before I work out, 16g of protein and 32g of carbs during my workout and 32g of protein and 64g of carbs after. I use Nitrean for the protein and dextrose for the carbs, all mixed in milk.

    Increase Intensity

    High Intensity low sets high reps will get both strength and conditioning done for you. Do this pick 10 lift to concentrate solely on for 66 days. Preform each to perfection for one set to failure 3 days per week. When you can do 12 plus reps before failure, the next day you lift increase the weight by 20+lbs. Be sure not to lift on consecutive days. After 66 days of this kind of training take 2 weeks off and concentrate on getting your footwork right for football. Then return to the plan same 10 lifts except this time you go on a rotationary routine i.e. Monday 10 lifts no breaks in between sets, Wednesday 10 lifts no breaks all negatives to failure. Friday same as Monday. Week 2 Monday & Friday do what you did on Wednesday wk1. and Wednesday do what you did for the previous Monday Friday. Rotate like this for 90 days. Rest for 2 weeks. Then evaluate your progress.

    Improve your power clean

    Try this work on your cleans 3 days per week.
    Day 1 Deadlift, Upright rows, and front squats (during these front squats do not cross your forearms for the front squats but instead grip the bar as though you are at the racked point of a power clean) do these lifts paired with your usual Monday routine do not exceed 15 differnet lifts for the day.
    Day 2 Hang Cleans (60% of your power clean max) paired with your regular work out.
    Day 3 Plyos- plus day 1 heavy routine.

    Once you improve and become comfortable with your ability to clean first replace hang cleans with power cleans. Then periodicly do clean variations (super cleans, Clean and press, the bear and any other clean variation you come across)
