    Seems like aligning by HS is a step in the right direction.

    As long as ALL of the teams are truly aligned by their HS districts, I cannot either. I think there is some concern about all of the "waivers" that allow kids to play out of district. It makes for an unbalanced distribution of talent which creates all sorts of issues.

    Not sure how it was done, but the best way is redistrict with no waivers and grand-fathered-in exceptions.

    Like I said for K-6 grade that may be an issue. For the senior teams its cut and dry, you play where you live, no exceptions.

    If your team doesn't have a Senior team your a loud to play for a team that does have a Senior team.

    Really would love to see the Boone County Middle Schools have football teams.

    Won't happen in the traditional sense, hence why they are going to this option.

    Still can't believe youth football starts so early around here. I'm convinced that such an early start is one of the issues hurting numbers.

    Numbers are good for South Kenton over 45 Juniors. Midgets and Starters have a full roster also.

    Any word on how the #'s look around the league? I heard the Ft. Thomas youth teams are considering joining the NKYFL. Any truth to that?
