Outlaws: Fred Davis – Head Coach, Tony Coley – Assistant Coach, Eric Nolden – Assistant Coach
Players Featured: Tamari Hayes, Tamaira (mother)
Myzel Miller, Bridget Lee (mother)
Lucas Coley (son of Coach Coley)

 
Coach Coley said that his goal is not to let any of their opponents score a point this year. They are currently 2-0. One of the kids said after taking down a teammate: That was easy. Coach Coley made the kid run. It’s good that he is teaching the kids not be unsportsmanlike.
 
Tamaira yells at her kid during the drill “Do you want your Xbox back?” You know that means he gets punished for not playing well. She also yells taunting phrases at the practices which seems odd because they are all on the same team. Coley had to talk to her about it and said the team already has a ghetto reputation so let’s not be that way. I feel bad for him having to worry about what the parents are doing as well as the children. She already said to the camera that she will not be silenced. I’m expecting more from her in episodes to come.
 
Myzel’s mother is making him miss the game to go to a wedding in Houston. Coaches are not happy he will be gone because he is one of their key players. She said it’s already been planned and since it is for 2 nights he had to go with them. If it was 1 night, she would have let him stay with someone or a coach. I don’t know why they would make an 8/9 year old boy go to a wedding. She has other kids going as well so one less kid would probably be easier.
 
 
Predators: Brian Brashears – Head Coach
Players Featured: Donte Goss, Shakia (mother), Andrew (father)
Kevin “KK” Brashears (son of Coach and Margie Brashears)

 
Coach tries to tell the kids to pay attention because some kids got hurt last week. This launches into the story of one of the Goss kids, Donte, that was in the hospital from a concussion. The concussion was so bad that he did not recognize his parents and was unable to remember his own name. The mother, Shakia had a good quote in the show:
 
“He looked at me and said I do not know who you are, please leave me alone. And as parent that is very heartbreaking…excuse me…that broke my heart for my son to say that he doesn’t know his mom. The next day the doctors let us know that he had a very severe severe concussion.”
 
They didn’t feel that his injury was unique to football and that kids can be hurt anywhere. In the past, they decided that after 3 concussions that kid is done with football. They have other children playing and in the cheerleading program associated with the team.
 
We get to see the Goss’s house with their 8 kids. They said they didn’t want kids but they ended up with 8. Isn’t that crazy and scary? But now, they say family is very important to them. They load up all the kids for Photo Day. Kids are in all their uniforms and such. The parents have to tell Donte he cannot play football or any kind of playing until his brain heals. That’s when the sad music starts to play because the kid is sad. They show him walking back into the stands and being sad.
 
KK’s mother, Margie, picks up her kid from school and shows them all having dinner. The parents keep asking the kid if he is nervous about the game. Obviously, coaching the kid to say he is scared about something. KK said he is nervous about getting injured because of the injury Donte had. Donte is the older brother of one of KK’s teammates. I think this show is trying to be a documentary on how families deal with the potential dangers of football.
 
 
JR Broncos: Charles Chavarria – Head Coach, Lisa Connell – General Manager “Momager”
Players Featured: Colby Connell (son of Lisa and Jeff)
 
Coach Chavarria is still mad that they are winless (0-2). He actually said the Baltimore Ravens were 8-8 and they won the Super Bowl. I like how he’s comparing themselves to a professional football team. Charles seems to be blaming the work ethic of the players saying they are probably not even upset that they are losing. Lisa blames the coaches for their losing because they are not changing anything to help them win.
 
 
JR Rockets: Keith Dyson – President, Isaac Quintero – Head Coach
 
President Dyson was taking the cameras through the football message boards with one of the threads being “JJR New President is a Joke”. He is just reading the stuff about his team and called them idiots (the people who comment/post). He was said kids read this and that seemed to concern him. He wasn’t above responding to comments on there though.
 
 
NE Colts: Marecus Goodloe – Head Coach, Paul Wingate – Co-Head Coach
Players Featured: Jaden “J Boogie” Armmer, Gloria (mother), Kinton (father)
Brandon “Pip” Neely

Games Featured:
 
Week 2: Outlaws vs. Cardinals 24-0
 
It was great to see at the start of the game, one of the Outlaw coaches pointing the vulture sitting on top of the light pole waiting. Tamaira (the crazy football mom) is in the stands with a bullhorn chanting and cheering.
 
 
Week 3: Outlaws vs. Predators 46-0
 
Both teams are undefeated. There was a hard hit on the Predator side where a child laid motionless and face down on the field. Eventually, coaches helped him up so everything is fine I guess. KK (Predators) tries to cry because someone stepped on his hand. Margie, his mother and wife of the coach, tells him to stop crying because she doesn’t want the other team to see him cry. Lucas Coley (Outlaws) threw up on the field and his father/coach told him to stop crying. I suppose there is no crying in football. Predator coaches think the kids are scared. Two of the Outlaws are pushing each other on the sidelines. Even after the game, fighting continues so the coaches makes them all run as a punishment.
