Questioning Bear


#1 Dec 14, 2007
Without a "feeder" system in place such as that provided for baseball (Little League), soccer (active youth soccer program) or basketball (part of the PhysEd program) I see a dim future for football in Granby. Proper training in fundimentals of the game and conditioning are basic requirements before a young man puts on the pads.He is not going to get this by showing up for spring (or fall) practice without some prior knowledge of the physical part of the game.
While I admire the Boosters and their ability to gather seed money, the existing financial supporters may not be there unless Granby comes up with a Tebow and/or a successful winning seasons.
I am one of the townspeople who does not want to see the town support this program thru taxation. The per person participation cost is much to expensive.

Start off with midget league football, work up to high school level over a period of time.
QB is right, unprepared is unaware.

I agree with "Questioning Bear." I am also a taxpayer and do not want this program supported by taxation.

Football is too expensive.
