You will always see teams that make you wonder how thw heck they got to the tournaments amd then some you sit back and say wow. We played a few in the PWSB that would of been maybe a little better than .500 in our conference. I wish we could of seen some better football, just bad timing.

That may be true- if you say it is, it is
However- consider some other things
Not ALL the kids on some of the teams travel to Florida
Many kids cant afford it or the parents wont let them be gone for a week from school
A few years ago I was helping a team from Hawaii that was using my stuff and made it to Nationals- I think they finished second
Three of their 4 starting RBs didnt make it
They couldnt afford it- and didnt come close to hitting their fund raising minimum quotas

The teams from Florida are great
But they have an advantage weather wise and travel $ wise

That year you played the Detroit Dolphins- their DC couldnt afford the trip
I became friends with him due to you guys running my stuff- he ended up coaching a team and ran it etc
However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results.

Thanks Coach Tito

For those who have never travelled a long distance- or practised in the cold- they just dont know
We had windchills below zero last week, snow etc

Those coaches from Detroit were great guys. The header was 21 I think. Jeff stayed in touch with for a while.
I get what you are saying about twam travel. I remember a team in 2011 we had on the clock about 3 minutes into the 2nd quarter. Not poorly coached at all, just not the talent level we are used to seeing down here.
