my child plays football for the junior high and i have not seen such poor coaching in my entire life it seems to me if you are not wealthy or know somebody you do not play the coaches promise these kids they will get to play and they dont they threaen the children if the parents say anything they wont get to play they have a titeend that falls on the ground when the ball is snapped and wont take them out the game must be a coacheS SON all these kids work just as hard as the rest they should be given a chance but it is obvious nobody cares unless you have money
