"Why We Love Football"
written by: kris wright, website administrator
We love football because football reflects America. The journey of every player from youth football, to high school varsity, to college and beyond is a microcosm of the American dream that inspired the colonists to rebel, the pioneers to go west, our great-grand parents to conquer economic depression and our parents to endure a cold war. To say Americans love football is an understatement. We are obsessed with it. When you have two good teams facing each other, then it's going to be a shootout until one team is left standing with the winning score. You'll be on the edge of your seat.
Football is all about strategy, there are multiple ways to score, pass, run, kick, play action pass, going for two after a touchdown, all of this is strategy, it's almost like a chess game, so while it may seem boring to some, if you actually pay attention to it you will notice that there is much more going on that you won't notice if you aren't looking for it. It is truly a brilliant game. Two teams defend their territory and violently tackle those who would encroach. There is nothing like the sound of the grunts and the equipment hitting each other in a tackle. Back and forth they struggle towards a goal; but the actual, underlying reason behind the game is to gain territory. In ten-yard increments the scoring team pushes while the scored-upon team gives ground in hopes of a stalemate and punt.
It’s fun to watch players push the boundaries of human performance. Football players regularly do things that are simply physically unavailable to the rest of us. 350 pound men should not be able to run faster than a normal person can. A person shouldn’t be able catch a ball while being assaulted and battered. The best wide receivers can leap over three and a half feet in the air. The linebackers are enormous, beastly beings that you wouldn't want to run across in the wrong situation. We admire their physique; ultimately, because we admire their strength. Throwing a ball 50 yards while jumping backwards just doesn’t seem normal, The thrilling sight of our big bruisers running from the locker room at the beginning of the game with overflowing testosterone, aggression, and adulation of screaming fans and jumping cheerleaders all come together in what has to be one of the best feelings of community and camaraderie ever. Despite the other team's superiority in gaining territory, there is always a chance, a hope, which the underdog can get away with an off-side or bring off a "Hail Mary" pass, but it sure is fun to watch it happen.
Yet, in the end, we enjoy watching football so much for the simple reason that we enjoy it, relating to fond memories of tossing the pigskin in the backyard with our fathers, or the coaches that made an impact on our life and it’s just plain fun. Football. say it to yourself and try not to get excited. Contain yourself. It’s hard, right? The simple thought of the sport can bring forth emotions of all types – excitement, joy, sadness, hope. We all have experienced these feelings at some point in relation to the game by supporting your youth football, Friday nights at your local high school, Saturdays yelling at the TV for your Alma Mater or Sundays glued to the TV while cheering like a madperson for your team. Why do we love the sport so much? Football doesn’t just deliver the emotion mentioned previously; it also creates memories and builds lasting relationships. Pretty powerful stuff!
Welcome to the Grizzlies Youth Football League, a 501 (c) 3, non-profit organization. The Grizzlies have two full-contact teams in two different age groups, and a flag football league for the younger players.
The JV team is for players aged 8-10. The Varsity has 11-12 year-olds that are in the sixth grade or lower.
Playing on the Grizzlies will require some travel.
Thanks for your interest in the Grizzlies Youth Football. We look forward to a fun and exciting year! Our success depends on the parents and volunteers. Any help that you can give will be appreciated.
