Because of this, we have developed a great chemistry and confidence in each other over the years. The kids expect to win each and every time and understand the type of attitude and commitment it takes to be able to stay on top each and every week. This type of positive attitude has been built over the past few years with core of the team and quickly was spread throughout the whole team when we started practice all the way back on August 1.
Because of their experience and amazing skill level, we have been able to push harder and add more complex plays and techniques that are of high school level. The kids have a mastery of our playbook that consists of over 60 plays. Its like nothing I've seen before at such a young age. They bring great passion and energy to the field everyday and it has been joy to coach and get to know all of them. As for me, yes I played baseball and football for the WOPAL growing up. I feel very lucky to be able to continue on with the PAL family now as a coach."
