Bremen has been dealing with lowering numbers for years. Give the staff credit, they coach up the kids that want to be out there.

Not sure about numbers, we've had two schools cancel lower level games due to numbers. These are Frosh/C team.

 

I just had a JV game cancellation.

Nice

Is that 9-12?

What are your goals for the upcoming season?

Thanks! Yes it’s 9-12... we are  looking to improve on the foundation we started last year and be competitive with everyone we play this season... it is a process to turn a program around and we are still pretty young (the bulk of our team is Sophomores and Juniors) but our guys are buying in and working really hard. Our staff is extremely excited for this season and the future of Frankfort football

Good luck this season Coach.   Hope to see you and the boys get some momentum and move that program forward.   I will remove Frankfort from my contraction watch list.

I'm sure this is a relief for most everyone.

It is what it is

Contraction is a real issue

I've seen several lower level game cancellations already reading thru the various forum threads. 

This is sure to continue

Truth is for whatever reason many students are not going out for a variety of sports at a lot of schools.  Some of it may be new family dynamics, school culture, etc.. Football is not the only sport, a lot of Baseball programs can not field a jv team anymore.  It is really concerning to me.  I don't think contraction is the best approach, I would rather give kids more opportunities, but if they aren't willing to participate, what are schools to do?

South Newton has 24 kids out. Only 1 Senior, so please do not contract yet.

SN football, just like all sports in God's country, is very cyclical...

Saw a team picture of South Bend Clay football team on twitter.  They have 29 players in the picture and 7 coaches.   A great 4.1/1 player to coach ratio.  The players should get a lot of individual instruction.  Clay should be added to the list for contraction.  DT I'm with you 100% on contrtaction.

Any idea how many players were on the squad last year?
