I'm more familiar with the recovery of a middle aged man (me) than with 16 year old athletes. However, I think you need to make sure you don't overtrain. Is there something that you feel that 2-3 hours of football practice (or basketball practice) is not developing for you? I would think you'd get lots of anaerobic conditioning (up/downs, etc.) as well as aerobic (running laps). What might be missing is training for explosive strength in which case you might want to integrate the O lifts. I'm not sure that purely tacking on WODs every day is the best approach since you're already getting a number of elements worked in those.

But I'm sure some experts in training young athletes will jump in with good ideas.

Just be alert to signs of overtraining like continuous fatigue, colds, etc.
