We finished our season last night with a 30-0 bowl win over a team from Virginia.  Didn't have any issues with the opponent.  They were comparable to us in terms of talent.  They had a RB who was better than our guys, but their coaches kept trying "trick 'em" plays, instead of playing fundamental football.  As a result, they just kept shooting themselves in the foot.  It was cold last night (in the 30s), but it was in a college stadium under the lights so the kids and parents enjoyed it. 

We finished at 6-1 as a hybrid (PeeWee/Jr. PeeWee team).  Several of the Jr. PeeWees were not only starters for us, but contributors.  Overall, it was a good season and I enjoyed the kids and loved coaching the O-Line, but I can't say that it's something I want to do again.  The daily drive was about 40 minutes to get to practice (in crazy after-work traffic) and about 30 minutes getting home, 4 nights a week.  Ran into a coach last night from my previous youth org who asked me about coming back to their org next year.  Nice to be invited, but I dunno.

No idea what next season holds.  I'm sure I'll reach out somewhere.  Maybe I'll be here, maybe Illinois, maybe the beach.  I dunno.
