Colts: Marecus Goodloe – Head Coach, Paul Wingate – Co-Head Coach, Clayton Guillory – Assistant Coach
Players Featured: Andru “Smiley” & Brandon Ramirez – Jacqueline Ramirez (mother)
Coach Goodloe is concern about all the concussions. He doesn’t want the sport to be taken away from the kids. It could be a ticket to success for some of them. Coach Wingate decided to take a break from coaching after Brandon’s injury. He said even when his own kid, O’Mariay, complained about having a headache he was so involved in the game that he told him to take an aspirin and get back out there without any further check. He felt it was out of character for him and is not sure if he’ll coach again. Coach Goodloe is adjusting to not having Coach Wingate. Clayton Guillory (new coach) is walking around with a baby strapped to his chest. He is calling today’s kids soft. They need to win both games coming up to make to the playoffs.
Spartans: Stephen Mirza – Head Coach, Kevin Clark – Assistant Coach, Tony Rodriguez – Assistant Coach
Players Featured: Zoe Robinson – Judith Watson (mother), Toby (stepfather)
They have lost 4 games in a row which is the reason Coach Mirza gives for why kids are not showing up to practice.
Outlaws: Fred Davis – Head Coach, Tony Coley – Assistant Coach, Eric Nolden – Assistant Coach, plus others
Players Featured: JuJu Thomas – Brittney Harris (mother)
A couple of injures for them too. JuJu Thomas got a concussion a couple weeks ago. His mother explains to him why he needs to go to the doctor for checks. The kid is already talking about how he knows there will be big his in college football. His mother said if he gets another concussion he is done.
JR Broncos: Joseph Onofre – Head Coach, Steven Rodriguez – Assistant Coach, Lisa Connell – General Manager “Momager”/Executive Director of Operations
Since they can’t make the playoffs, the goal now is to knock the Colts out of the playoffs. Parents don’t think the coaches are giving the motivation or good leadership. Lisa is caught in the middle. Coach Onofre goes to a high school game to watch his son play who is a senior.
Games Featured:
Week 4: JR Broncos vs. Ducks 6 – 42
Parents are not happy with the game management from the coaches. They were confused about who was out on the field for a play. The coaches feel underappreciated.
Week 5: Spartans vs. Ducks 0 – 36
Only 19 kids for the Spartans which is much less than usual, but they only need 11 to play. A kid said he hurt his wrist and coach said he’s fine. Dizziness was mentioned but ignored. Coach does think they played hard enough to get hurt. Latrell McCutchin (Ducks) runs over kids the whole game. Coach Mirza puts the loss on lack of attendance during the week.
Week 5: JR Broncos vs. Colts 20 – 35
Backup quarterback for the Colts and it was a close game. I think a kid’s mom called him a wussy for complaining about some injury. She later apologized slightly. I think they said it could be a tail bone injury.
