I remember in 7th grade football, playing against a bigger school that had a couple of kids that had a full goatee and one with a five o'clock shadow.

I have absolutely no problem with this.

"For him to come home and just cry and go to his room and say, 'I give up.' I'm not going to let him give up. This is his dream. This is what he wants to do. And I'm going to make it happen," she said.

So you'd rather your mountain child play football with kids a third his size? First off: what kind of experience is that going to give him? He's going to steamroll other players and give him no real experience against real opponents. Second: if you're sad because he's crying, imagine the tears from the other players he's most certainly going to injure because of the size difference.

Earnheart's mother, Cindy Earnheart, has been contesting the ruling and plans to protest with painted signs and shirts that say, "Let Elijah Play Squash Kids Like Ziplocs Full of Jello."

Seriously. He's not going to learn a goddamned thing about how to actually "play football" by Flintstoning his way over everyone... I might be inclined to say that it'd be a good experience for the other kids (learn ways to beat bigger, stronger opponents) but it's not like h.s. football will be loaded with 500lb players.

/okay - if they end up playing in mississippi or alabama, there may be some quarter-tonners

The kid sounds like a big fat crybaby. He'll get over it as soon as he gets a scholarsheeip to college and a one way ticket to the NFL.
 
2012-08-14 10:55:37 PM
His dream is to play for the pee wee league specifically?
I hope Rob Schneider or Adam Sandler don't read this article.

My Dad took me to sign up for Pop Warner football when I was 8, but I was too big ... for the 13 year olds. I hit 6'1" and 185 when I was 13 which was definitely not a problem for the high school freshman football team.

/Our defensive line was 225, 210, 190, 185 , 165
//Bigger than the varsity defensive line

Actually, we won that game, by two points.

/single wing baby
//we had two kids faster than lightning
///one won the state 100 (yd at the time) his jr and sr year with a record for that division at the time
 
2012-08-14 11:18:05 PM
I would let him play, big ass pussy probably sucks anyway.

We had a kid that towered over us by a foot one game and we beat that kid into the ground so bad he say out the entire second half, he was slow, uncoordinated, and weak just like this kid looks, the boy looks soft and I know plenty of kids when I played who would stomp him while playing.

Just play the next league up, Nancy. You'll make new friends especially if you have any skills besides "big".

Apparently he has 'friends' in the PeeWee league & he still thinks that this is a Demorcracy & doesn't wanna follow the rules.

We had one of those on our team. His dad was a coach and faked his birth certificate to get him on the team. We still werent very good, first round exit in the playoffs.

Couldn't he at least get on the high school freshman team? I know in my day there were middle schoolers on the high school varsity basketball team.

Hell let him practice with high school kids for a couple of years, bring him up to speed slowly, that way he can learn some technique and by the time he's eligible to play he'll be a monster.

That was probably my school. We had a new kid transfer into my seventh grade class, and everyone just knew he was an undercover narcotics agent. His nickname was "Narc" from day one. He had a huge five o'clock shadow, etc.

Well, to "prove" he wasn't a narc, he went out for the football team. Was actually a decent middle linebacker.

End of the season comes, lo and behold, he WAS a narc, 19 years old, fresh out of the police academy. Here to save us from teh demon weed. We ended up forfeiting every game he played in.

Found out at my 10 year reunion that Narc lost his shiny new badge shortly thereafter, seems he had taken indecent liberties with some 14 year old girls in my class.

Either he's the stupidest cop with the stupidest boss in the stupidest police district, or that's the stupidest BS story I've ever heard, I'm going with the stupidest BS story I've ever heard.

To the parents of this big kid:

other parents pay $ to not have their kids killed by your man-beast.
Solution: be rich or stop letting your kid eat himself into an early grave.

This. Also, it's nice that his Mama is telling the world that he came home crying.

When I was 19 and fresh out of the academy I went undercover as a seventh grader at jr high in Texas. I played middle linebacker and pulled more tail than a slow kid at a petting zoo. Back then the age of consent was 14 so it was totally cool but then they found out I smoked one joint and lost my job. Should have just stuck to crack cause its out of your system in a couple days rather than being dirty for 30 on weed. But even tho crack makes those 14 year olds hornier than a seven peckered toad it makes them chattier than Joan Rivers. So i switched em to weed to mellow them out. Dumb mistake but you live and you learn.

CSB. You should turn it into a movie. Channing Tatum can play the role of the undercover officer.

I STILL vividly remember the narc in our high school during my freshman year.

He was a ginger with a receding hairline.

His brother looked like him AND was the school's police resource officer at the time.

/Gunderson High School, San Jose, CA circa 1984.
//What a shiatty school. They closed it down a few years later.

Sign him up for the basketball team, pronto!

As for this kid, I would say let him try out for the high school football team, but you only get four years of eligibility at the HS level.
 
2012-08-15 06:39:49 AM
My brother was 6'0 at 13, but was probably only about 160 pound then.

300 pounds is huge. However, watching the video, it does appear he can play football. They're actually saying it's the fact he's in junior high that makes it so he can't play with younger kids, and that he CAN play in a school league.

I'll bet he will feel really good when his fatass punctures the lung or kidney of one of his buddies. I'd suggest his family worry less about football and more about getting his weight under control. Good money is on diabetes developing in the next 5 years.

Ctown34: have him play junior high football. problem solved.


Yep.

FTA: "seventh-graders over the weight limit must play in a school league."

He's concerned that the school league is only for experienced players? Hell, I coach freshmen and get kids that haven't ever played because they are too big for youth leagues and we don't have Jr. high/middle school sports, period.

Shut up, buckle up, and get in the huddle, kid.
