Football Rules



As to the 9th and 10th graders. If you can play you will play. If you can't, then chances are you won't. As to the road getting to the field, leave earlier. We are Heritage!!! Stop bickering and complaining and start being supportive of the people who take their time to teach your kids life lessons other than just sports.

I'm reading a lot of Monday Morning Quarterbacking, sounds like all these opinions would be more useful on the field as a volunteer instead of next day bashing. Perhaps Coaches would value your input if there were more involvement besides how to do their underpaid, underappreciated job. Don't tell someone how to do their job unless you've done it yourself.

In response to your comment about school sports lets go back 60s. When it came down to who got to play it is the same today. It is who you are. When your child came home crying because he did not make the team and his team mates said I do not know why when you are as good as the one that made the team so you tell me big shot. The kids that made the team should have made it with talent instead of who their parents were or how much they were worth. By the way you have been a Kennedy you would have been a better person than what you are today.

In response to the previous writer, at this stage in the football game I think all that counts is size, not name. Boys that are called up are talented but they also have size to play with the larger boys. I hope the previous writer did not pass on her bad attitude to her son. Life is what you make it. Not everyone is born a Kennedy but they can still become President.

Well glad to know you think winning is more important then kids health. Everyone in yancey county can look at names and see why these kids are playing on two nights its not talent. But like I told my son who has moved on from high school now and the mental abuse of football. Karma will fine you for what you do to these kids. So glad mine is out of it.

I don't think we're going anywhere "again". Coaches don't ask kids what grade they're in during pre-season tryouts. Their empahasis is on who can get the job done best where it's needed and a backup in case of an injury. The high school level is way above participation trophies. It is essential to have a winning program to attract colleges to players worthy of scholarships. Last year, I think three players were picked up with scholarships. It is also expected, by the fans, that winning utilizing the best talent on the field, is what our team deserves. Albeit, the fans want wins, the coach is not responsible to you, me, the fans or players parents. The head coach and specialty coaches are responsible to the players. Not winning when you have players that can, no matter the age or grade level, is something a quality coach won't be a part of. He (she) is not a baby sitter. Concussions are not a matter of age. Generally they are accidental or poor form in making contact by the player. Coaches teach proper posture for contact. Any player that makes the team is capable and we will always encounter those more capable. Our program is sound and successful.

Here we go again 9-10 grade football players playing on Thursday and then again on Friday night while 11-12 sit on bench. This increases concussions and injury to players and we wondering why our high school boy are dying on the field should be a rule against this.
