As long as this thread was resurrected from the dead I can update that I ultimately failed to get him to enjoy football.  He played two total years of tackle football (one at center and one at QB) but decided he didn't like contact or the sport in general and no longer plays.

You did not fail, you gave him the opportunity to discover.  To each their own.

I won't lie, I didn't realized this post was bumped and I liked 2 of Michael's posts before I even realized it. I really miss that guy.
