and golds best player somehow ended up on ba black which I could careless honestly but thought it was a little fishy
Do you think he would end up on the Chrome Team? After his dad got his team taken away and they added a new coach? Would you want to play for a new coach after the league basically casted your dad out? That is basically his dadís replacement if you look at it the right way.

There are players on every team that played on Gold last year.  They all went back into the draft, the ex-coaches kid ended up on Black because he was drafted by them.  The other good running back ended up on White and and one on Chrome, seems like it was pretty spread out as the draft makes it.

White was the new team formed when we went to 3rd grade. All we had last season was 5 kids that had played tackle and the rest drafted.

Red and black have been around since 1st grade. So I guess what Iím saying is that there are no stacked teams in owasso, we coaches all try to get along and support each other(we took a bunch of kiddos off our team to watch the BA white vs Oblack game to support them), but thereís a struggle to get each and every talented kid.

This season Red did have quite a few kids not come back so they got most of the kids out of the draft. Sometimes I wish we could have a ďstackedĒ owasso team but like Spartanpride said, that would make some kids want to quit that someday after the hair starts growing could be studs. So I like the format for the most part.

You've also got to look at the division that these teams are in... With a few "powerhouse" teams in each division, there are going to be teams with 3 losses no matter what. TYAA Blue, BA Black and Jenks White all in the same division give a team like McAlester 3 automatic losses. And if you have an "off game" like Choctaw Blue did against Stillwater, and you still have to play Edmond, and Jenks Maroon, you're at 3 losses... Just my opinion. Its hard to beat some of these teams that have played 3-4 years together. I know that we have had about 5-6 of our boys on the same squad since 1st grade, and these boys are BEST FRIENDS and would literally lay their life on the line for one of their teammates. I think this plays a huge factor in football.

As far as the draft and how teams are set up, @ Jenks, we do pretty much exactly what BA described, (without the recruiting of players outside of our boundaries  :o :-* ). With so many returning players from last year, we didn't pick up a single player in the draft and all available players went to Jenks White as they had 3-4 players less than us at the time of the combine. Protect or not, they will even out the squads first, then allow protects and players to be drafted. We try to keep it pretty fair over here and want our fellow Jenks teams to be as competitive as possible. These boys are all going to play HS ball together one day, hopefully and no one ever got a scholarship for winning a 4th grade INFC Championship. There is no "my dad", or "new players" that live outside of the Jenks school district. I thought the rule was that if you played in INFC last year and moved to a new district with a team, that you had to sit out one year? Guess that's not the case with certain teams **cough cough  BA cough cough**

I think he is referring to BA.  Didn't you have the samething last year in Bixby with 2 strong teams and one weaker one but this year you lost one team so you guys had to add more players on your 2 teams?

Yah, I think its pretty normal to have some variance (8-1, 6-3, 4-5) across 3 teams in a town, but 9-0 and 0-9 is what I am mainly talking about. I know there are injuries and luck and illnesses that play a factor. It has been nice to see how everyone's teams have evolved and formed. I agree the INFC is awesome and I wish we had this back where I grew up.

I liked CoachEmUp's thoughts about the leagues. I'd be interested in the AA being much larger to where maybe there would be 3 divisions in A and 3 divisions in AA so we would see more 19-14 scores instead of so many 35-0 scores across all divisions... That's what I like about USSSA baseball. Bring your team and compete at whatever level your team is at (A, AA, AAA, Majors). It keeps the kids having fun even if they aren't at the top level. My boys love baseball and they've never been on a "Majors Team." I just think there could be a better way...

And get to "pick" and choose which team you go to?? Hence the "almost turning into fist fights at the draft" in front of 4th grade boys..... cough cough cough COUGH

The almost fist fight that I was talking about happened in the 3rd grade draft room in 2011. So apparently Iím not sure what you are referring to I guess. My Bad!

I agree also... Iíve been saying for the past 10 years that the INFC needs to at LEAST have competitive divisions and recreational divisions in each grade.

3rd grade, 4th grade... Doesn't matter to me. We all read the forum posts last year where there were issues with BA and the draft process in 3rd grade. Just saying that there have been plenty of rumors and usually where there's stink, there's sh*t.... Just saying. Nothing but love to all the coaches and teams.
