1a football is not real football.
I'm sick and tired of getting dirty looks when I wear my Letterman's jacket around town, and having to quickly stop to explain to people that what they've seen is not real football, and that it's not all a joke.
I busted my Butt playing football in school, from the time I earned my first letter in 96 to the time I graduated in 2002, I even set the school record for most quarters played, one which I am extremely proud of, and hope it remains for a long time.
Then I move out to indiana 2 years ago, and get compared to these 1a schools, this is a sham.
I suggest these schools replace football with a wholesome sport like kickball, itd be no less competition than they've got going now, and people would get less confused about what hs football really is.
On top of that there would be much less of a chance of injury.
