Watch Some 5- And 6-Year-Olds Run The Statue Of Liberty Play

The Suniland Sundevils adorably embarrassed their equally adorable opponents with this trick play. If I coached pee wee football, I'd run trick plays all the time. Precious little swinging gates. Darling hook and laterals. Look at them! They think they're people! » 11/11/13 11:04am 11/11/13 11:04am

Massive Pee Wee Running Back Just Completely Destroys Normal-Sized Kid…

If anyone has details on this, please send them over. All we know is that the fullback on the brown team is a monster of a beast of a human being (they don't give out the number 00 to just anyone), and that the safety on the purple team tried to be a hero, and it ended poorly for him. Watch No. 11 on purple—after… » 11/26/12 1:05pm 11/26/12 1:05pm

Five Pee-Wee Football Players Suffered Concussions In A 52-0 Loss

It is not as absurd a question as it would have been, say, 10 years ago: Would you want your kid playing football? You can point to the safety advances, and the increased awareness, and the character-building spiel—and then you can point to a Pop Warner football game in Massachusetts last month, in which five players… » 10/22/12 1:10pm 10/22/12 1:10pm

The Coach Of The Junior Pee Wee Red Cobras Has Been Suspended After…

Kids—10- and 11-year-old kids—allegedly getting paid for whatever the Pop Warner equivalent of knockouts and cart-offs are. Yeah. "Kill the head and the body will grow up feeble and addled." The going rate for successfully concussing a tween? Between $20 and $50. Christ, society. » 9/28/12 3:50pm 9/28/12 3:50pm

Massive 12-Year-Old Too Big For Pee Wee Football, Too Bad At Football…

KDFW reports on the story of Elijah Earnheart, who at the tender age of 12 is already six feet tall and weighs nearly 300 pounds. Elijah wants to play football, but because of his size, he's been banned from his Mequite (Texas) Pee Wee team.

"Hit 'Em In The Face As Hard As You Can," Then Pray: Pee-Wee Coach…

A reader sent in this video of a Texas U6 team getting a pep talk from its coach before a game. He exhorts the Frisco Gators to push hard, be tough, and "hit 'em in the face as hard as you can." (One of his kids corrects him—"in the chest"—to nervous laughter from parents.) But before the face- or chest-hitting can… » 9/21/11 11:10am 9/21/11 11:10am

Is This Pee-Wee Team Running A Fumblerooski Or Just Bad At Football?

The Southaven, Miss., Broncos were leading 25-0 and well on their way to winning a recent game when they lined up for the extra point. What happened next might have been poor sportsmanship or a broken play. » 11/15/10 5:25pm 11/15/10 5:25pm
