Re: PIAA- All 9th Graders to High School Football

Your right dad, you are the protector of your own children, like all of us. That's were I say communication with your AD or head coach would benefit all involved.
Talk to them about your concerns..I'll bet there is something that can be resolved..

Re: What the Heck?

It's not a pessimistic post, I take it as constructive advise. Especially, from where you've been and what you have seen. You are right when you say pure talent will trump any hitting or pitching lesson when your young. Some kids will progress through their later teens and do make some noise...But, ...

Re: PIAA- All 9th Graders to High School Football

Coaches are there for a reason..You have to trust they going to put you kid into the right position, so he/she can be successful, thrive at the position along with having fun. Any coach I've dealt with, or talked to, have no intentions in putting your 110lb kid against a 200lb plus monster. That is ...

Re: PIAA- All 9th Graders to High School Football

I know at times my boy had to put his big-boy pants on when he was in JH.. With only 3 eighth grade starters him and 7 other seventh graders played both ways..They did go up against some teams with ninth graders. Think that year they went little over .500 record. Thought that whole seventh grade cla...

Re: Christian McCaffrey

Do see the money/NFL side of the decision not to play. And the chance of an injury..But, these college's also invested in these athletes. These student athletes got a free education, and all the other "benefits" that went into signing with their particular college. If McCaffery is even close to bein...

Re: PIAA- All 9th Graders to High School Football

I remember one season, and maybe more, where Portage had two JV teams.  I think in early 2000's??  I am assuming 9th graders were brought up then?  There where some back to back grades bringing about 20 kids a piece to the teams in the mid 2000's..yes 9th grade was with the varsity/JV...not quite s...

Re: PIAA- All 9th Graders to High School Football

Right, here at Portage, without the Freshmen class at the varsity/if level. There would have been roughly mid-twenties players standing on the sidelines on Friday nights. And we definitely would not had a JV team. It's almost a must playing Freshmen up in the Westpac. If I had any concerns when my b...

Re: PIAA- All 9th Graders to High School Football

Most freshman should not be on the field Friday night. Maybe in blowout games for the cleanup..But there are always exceptions. Couple years ago, heard of a 17yr old 9th grader playing in a JV game.
