My kid played Football and Lacrosse. I was one of the coaches for football. A lot of those guys are trying to relive their lives through the kids. Bunch of dopes. Football was rough, lacrosse was brutal.
My cousin is a corner for Dartmouth. He returns kicks and plays gunner also. Busted open his spleen last year. It's not stopping him from playing this year. Some kids just like this stuff. What can you do?
