    Football things.....good things and my son.

    Maybe. My 15 year old has just been upped to the varsity level.

    I was kinda hoping he stayed JV for more game experience. Looks like that's not to be. This isn't a bad thing, but I'm not sure it's a good thing.

    His first game of the season is tonight, so you'll know where I'll be.

    15 and varsity? Impressive. 16 and JV here so I kinda know where he's coming from. But I say what minir basically says. If he can play at varsity level he should play for varsity. So I think it's fine.

    A son to be proud of downhill, good luck to your son at tonights game.

    Try not to embarass the poor kid by tucking his shirt in, or tying his shoes up in front of the other players

    when i was in 6th grade i played hockey with 9th graders at their level, i honestly believe playing at a higher level gets u better prepared. after my first year playing with 9th graders i then got into my own grade level 7th at that point and felt i had an edge against the others, i was considered 2nd best at the worst part of teh year 1st the rest

    he'll only learn quicker this way.

    Sounds like your boy is off to a good start! ( I didn't know you had kids.. ) I hope he goes out and tears em all a new one and hands them their asses to them.

    Tell us how he does...

    wait, he didn't take after dad did he? I mean, I'm sure the pompom's will look good on him too....lol
