My Little League Football Team Victory
 
I'm sure no one cares, but honestly this is the most pumped and excited I've ever been during any type of game. OK, so I coach football in little league, the kids are middle school age. The game last night was a team we know we should beat, coincidentally named the Cowboys. Not to make this story exceptionally long, I'll abbreviate the first three quarters. Basically, we started the game with a three and out on defense and scoring on our first touch on offense, thinking things were going to turn into a rout.

6-0 us after a failed two-point conversion.

Ensuing kickoff the other team takes back for the touchdown. Gets the conversion 8-6.

The game goes back and forth, back and forth until they scored, game is tied at 22-22. Some of the kids I coach don't even know the rules of football and we have to put the fat kids on the front of kickoff return because they aren't allowed to run the ball. So they kick it onside to this fat kid who just STARES at the ball, they hop on it, two plays later, they score, no conversion. 28-22 them.

We run the kickoff back to the fifty, and this is the fourth quarter now. 4th and two, and get stuffed by their fat ass nose guard. One minute left in the game, and I was NOT going to let our team go out like this. They started kneeling, and I was like HELL NO. I called timeout, lined up ALL my linebackers (4 of them) both defensive ends ALL over the center and I said, "You better get me that ball." Our guys totally blew up the center on the snap and knocked him back into the QB who dropped the ball. We recovered on their 40.

40 seconds left, sweep left, stuffed. I call timeout, ran two straight pass plays that were incomplete. 4th and 10, threw the same pass to our TE, went all the way in for the touchdown. We put in a trap right before the game and there is NO DE in little league who knows what pulling is, so our guard DESTROYED their DE and we went in untouched for the conversion.

We kicked off, and the D was so fired up that they didn't gain a single yard until I pulled our LBs and safeties back into prevent and they ran out with :00 left on the clock. Just thought I'd share since it felt very similar to the Cowboys game of last year.

Thanks dude. I hate how our league FORCES us to play everyone. Like I am forced to play even the tiniest scrubs for 16 plays a game.

I used to play O-line in little league and I remember when we first started using pulls. I can remember coming around the tackle and just blowing up a corner or a LB on a sweep. Those plays were the best!

Seriously, until high school the kids have no idea what's coming. All our games get taped, if I can make that final conversion into a clip, I will. Seriously, the kid left his feet and his helmet was the first thing to hit the ground.

this is what you can do:
make all the scrubs WRs, and you make them stand in a long line. These guys play #2 or #3 WR on running plays. you just put the first guy in line into the game, and next play he's at the back of the line. rinse and repeat.

all the FB teams I ever played on did this, and nobody seemed to care.

Some of the scrubs are too fat. You can't be in a position to touch the ball if you're over the weight limit.

That's a BS rule. Poor unathletic fat kids get denied the opporunity to do the one thing they might be able to do somehwat well just because they are fat. Everyone needs to go back to the weight classes instead of the age classes. Fat kids can play with fat kids.

Do you have a 700 page playbook? Did your QB play his guts out?

TheMalcolmConnection 10-04-2006 11:17 AM

Re: My Little League Football Team Victory
 
HAHAHA! No 700 page playbook but the kids most definitely played their guts out. I ALSO do have a Counter Trey.

more like a 7 page play book.

HA. Maybe two.

Re: My Little League Football Team Victory
 
But I totally agree, it doesn't matter if you're fat or not, it's FOOTBALL. They're not going to learn anything if they only get small kids to run. I have one kid who would be a BEAST fullback, but he can't run the ball.

You need me to play against those kids. I bet I could score a lot of touchdowns! Ain't no way any kid is fast enough or strong enough to bring me down. I seriously would just dominate in this league!

Haha.
When I was in 9th grade I played one last year of pop warner because I didn't think I'd be big enough to try out for JV. Ironically I had to drop like 5lbs to make the weight limit to play that year and it was hard as shit to do it. I had to run a lot and not eat the night before/day of the weigh in. I acted like it was the hardest thing in the world.
A couple of months later I joined the JV wrestling team and dropped something like 10lbs really fast without even trying. Then later on when I was on the varsity team I ended up dropping about 25lbs in about 3 weeks to make a lower weight class. I'm still the only person I know that went down weight classes between 11th and 12th grade, since most people either go up of stay the same.
I need to go on that diet/workout routine again.
