    I did not want to say anything but it was my impression that this was the game plan from the beginning, 2 weeks casted to see if it would heal well enough then if not, surgery.

    Talked to the young man today. He said he went for a ct scan and will no more monday. Although he didnt say it. He's really hoping he hasnt stood behind center for the last time as a Ludlow Panther. You have to believe friday night will be extremely tough on him.

    Agree, this young man is a great athlete however, it may be a little tougher on his teammates.

    It appeared to be that way.

    Although the offense has essentially been the same for years, Rouse had big shoes to fill of King, King had big shoes to fill of Lewis. Rouse was a good football player but Ludlow has had a recent trend of finding athletic kids to fit this system at the QB position.

    With the injury being to his left wrist, is there a possibility we could see him in another week or two running the offense out of the shotgun? I'm not sure of their offensive style, but you would think he might be able to play.

    They actually run the shotgun spread already. The difficulties would obviously come with ball control. He would have to catch the ball off the snap, not to mention the fact that the QB runs a lot out of the shotgun and it would make it difficult to not fumble. With that being said, I would love to see him back on the field!

    If it was a normal cast for a broken wrist he would actually still be playing...However they decided to cast it up to his elbow, so he cant really move his left arm at all. This was done because they think this possibly could prevent him from having to have surgery. Which is obviously something they would want to avoid...

    Not positive but pretty sure, an 8th grader can not play above the freshman level in football, state rule? I know in the past when the freshman have played some games and the other team had to bring soph, our 8th graders could not play.

    Rule says that an 8th grader cannot participate in any VARSITY contest in contact sports. However, any contests that are not deemed varsity contest are fair game for 8th graders. I will try to find the exact wording and post it here.

    The rule is in Bylaw 4, sec d. The question is what does "non-varsity" consist of? I interpret this to mean they can not play JV/V in football or soccer if they are below grade 9.

    IMO, if I am this 8th grader's parents there is no way he is playing in a JV game no matter how good he is. The younger athlete may have the athletic ability to compete but does not have the maturity mentally and especially not physically to step on the field w/older players, at least not in the contact sports.

    The only ball 8th graders can play is freshman. No varsity or jv.

    How difficult is this to interpret? Non-Varsity means exactly that, NON - VARSITY. How can you interpret that to mean that an 8th grader cannot play in a JV game? Trust me........I'm very sure about this

    I understand what your saying about the size and mental maturity vs. older players. I think that if you look you'll find that there are very few cases of 8th graders playing JV football other than the very small schools like Bellevue, Ludlow, Dayton, Brossart, etc. If these schools didn't let the young kids play up they would have difficulty fielding a JV team. Then how do you develop your younger talent for the varsity level?

    I'll throw a name out though from a large school that played JV as an 8th grader, a young man named Scottie Gray. I don't think it hurt his psyche too much. Now I'll agree that at larger schools it is the exception, not the rule, that someone so young would be able to sucessfully compete at the JV level.

    You got to remember that Ludlow, Bellevue, Dayton, etc. formed their own little freshman/jv league this year. So its not a true freshman team since there are some sophomores on it, but its also not really a true JV team. So either way I think an 8th grader would be aloud to play with the little league these teams created...
