    We are fighting the battle currently to get flag football installed into our community. The people resisting believe they are saving football by having first graders run into each other full speed. They are fighting the good fight, but aren't seeing the bad practices in what they are fighting to protect. I don't have a son yet (crossing my fingers), but I would not like him to wear pads and a helmet until he has hit puberty and beginning to...

    Great one, read it a while ago. Good scientific reasoning without all the hysteria. Ask kids all the time in the hallway about football and always get the same answer: "I don't have the time." These are kids that don't do anything and kids that play other sports. I don't know what their parents say, but kids seem to think they have more important things to do than spend their time playing football. Take that as you will.

    I like this. It's hard to play for a championship if you have never been there, but that should be the goal of the program. Each team should have their own goals. When we took over, we set a goal for the program to be a team that competes for a district title and a chance for a championship. We have yet to win a single district game, so our goals this year are to win district games. When that is the norm, our goal will be to win district titles...

    If I follow you correctly, you mean that if they stay 5A then Grant would be pushed to a district to the south or west and if they move up then Grant would be forced back in to the district that they just left, ultimately making Grant drop out of district play again. Correct?

    Thank you for your post coach. There are some of us on here that join the forum to participate in discussion about the sport we love and we hear comments about ourselves that do not always feel good. The thick skin is necessary in our profession even though I wish it wasn't so. Rumors, misconceptions and hearsay can ruin anybody and social media is a great platform for this type stuff despite its great qualities. I think sites like this one...

    If those of us associated with PC could add our input, we would travel up and down the AA each week vs traveling to the others is Proposed District 4. We can be at Mason in 45 min, Lewis in 65, and Fleming in 75-80. Rather travel that way and compete with schools that are more like us. With that being said, we are on an island up in NKY. No 3A teams up here. We are impossible to place in that class and we CANNOT play up to make travel easier....

    That district is a program killer if you are not "elite". Look to the east at Pendleton County, playing the likes of CovCath, Highlands and Holmes (mixed with plummeting enrollment) made it very hard for the former Head Coach Terry Brown to find success. He's a good coach that led a CovCath defense to a state title this year. My point is, if you are not on the level or anywhere near that level, it can kill or cripple your program despite who you...
