I am going to make a few more adjustments to those age groups this year to improve and hopefully continue to increase numbers. Also, what I did is if a kid's parents really wanted that child to play tackle i considered the kid's age, size and parent situation etc.. I was pretty satisfied with the result.Advertisement

Feb 12, 18, 07:11 PM #63I am very happy my son never played football. Basketball and Golf were his sports. Although, he will never experience the camaraderie and bonds, and friendships that football produced for me. He has friends and guys he hangs out with, but he doesn't have those guys that would lay down in traffic for you. I have team mates that I have not seen in decades, but when we do get together, we do not miss a beat. I also contribute that to the community that I grew up in.
Football, the military, certain fraternal orders and fire departments produce this type of friendship.
