This is the big show, Outlaws vs. Colts. The episode has a lot of back and forth between coaches, kids, and parents discussing what will happen in the end of the regular season game. A little time is spent on the kids going out for Halloween.
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)
EJ Nolden (son of Coach Nolden)
I love that Coach Davis tells the kids to go home and look in their drawers to see if they have anything in there and if they don’t, then don’t show up. Can you say things like that to 8/9 year olds? That made me laugh.
NE Colts: Marecus Goodloe – Head Coach, Paul Wingate – Co-Head Coach
Players Featured: Jaden “J Boogie” Armmer, Gloria (mother), Kinton (father)
Brandon “Pip” Neely
Coach Goodloe and his staff are watching tape to plan out how to play the Outlaws. I still can’t get over how much prep is involved. My other question is: Does Marecus ever not have a hat on?
JR Broncos: Charles Chavarria – Head Coach, Lisa Connell – General Manager “Momager”
Players Featured: Colby Connell (son of Lisa and Jeff)
Parents are skeptical if all they need to do is win this week to get into the playoffs. Chavarria tells the kids and the parents that “if they win, they’re in”. An annoyed Lisa wants to give the kids the trophies for participation but Chavarria says they didn’t earn it. People always want to give their kids so much praise for doing very little. If you don’t win then you don’t get a prize. That’s how it works in the real world. Kids should start to learn that now.
JR Rockets: Keith Dyson – President, Isaac Quintero – Head Coach, Dave Edwards – Assistant Coach
So Coach Quintero is telling the kids right off the bat that they are not going to the playoffs whether they win or lose their game this week. Their game plan is to prevent the JR Broncos from advancing. I believe that is the type of coach I would be. I’d say if we can’t win then let’s start taking people out; probably not very sportsmanlike. Dyson said he’s already look towards next season when they have better staff and he will not coach next year unless something like this season happens again.
Predators: Brian Brashears – Head Coach
Players Featured: Donte Goss, Shakia (mother), Andrew (father)
Kevin “KK” Brashears (son of Coach and Margie Brashears)
No air time this week.
Games Featured:
Week 7: JR Broncos vs. JR Rockets 31-18
Broncos win their game so presumably they get into the playoffs. The Rockets look just as bad as they have all season. The announcer even says that the win doesn’t guarantee they are in. Chavarria was lying to all of us.
Week 7: Outlaws vs. NE Colts 43-13
Davis is not having all the playing around before the game. Both teams are undefeated coming into the game. Overall, the game was good. I think the Colts lost confidence when the Outlaws started to pull away from them. Coaches for the Colts were surprised to see their kids fold emotionally the way they did. I don’t know who is more upset, the kids, coaches, or parents.
