Off to photograph a high school football game today.  The local schools play in a 6 man league this year.  I've never seen 6 man football before, it should be interesting.

In Oregon we have 8 man as well, it is still a 100 yards wide but narrower, a 6 man field is 15 yards narrower than an 8 man field. 
Everyone is eligible.
The Quarterback must hand off the ball or pass it before he crosses the line.
15 yards to a first down.
A "2 pt conversion" is worth 1 point.
An "extra point" is worth 3 points.

We scored 72 points and had our 2nd string in for most of the 2nd half.

Snackem, were your guys the favorites? Your opponents may not have felt as bad as Kansas did after getting knocked off at home yesterday by Coastal Carolina.

Most likely.  We were fairly good in the past playing 8 man.  We had a fairly cancerous class come through that wanted to win a state title or not compete at all.  They realized that we couldn't beat our rival (though we could have been a state semifinalist team) so none of them came out for football just wanting to focus on basketball (we were the 2x defending state champs).  Halfway through last season we had to cancel the remainder of the season because we couldn't field a team.  This year we have a lot more kids out and we would probably be competitive in 8 man.

Football coach killed our wrestling team.  He held it against any kid that didn't spend the winter in the weight room. He also killed the youth wrestling program pumping the 7th and 8th grade pop warner kids to get in the weight room..  We had a hard time filling the roster 160 and up.  The bozo let them run track and do field events or play baseball though.  It took a UPS truck to get him out.  He was struck by a truck backing out of a driveway.  The new head coach encouraged wresting but by then the damage was done and brought the youth league numbers back to a respectable number..

Long day Monday, ended it with my son's football practice (3rd/4th grade flag football) and then the school board meeting.  Time for a beer and some old wrestling matches.

Rutty Tuesday, and I thought Monday's were the worst.  It's a long look up that Wednesday hump.

Our football coach (also the Principal/AD) is open to wrestling, the community hates the idea.  We're a basketball community and we don't want to hurt our basketball team.
