And I believe the Jr. Warriors have all their coaches (yes my kid plays on Jr. Warriors)and there was no change from last year from what I heard.
BS? well I can see why you say that its BC out of the 10 Mustanges teams and 8 JRW,JRK team you were w/2 of the worst 3 NL coaches for youth football development.

That all sounds good, but it is BS. I was JV warrior last year and if you werent top 15-20, you didnt play, period! I was LW warrior 2 years ago, everyone got good playing time. SL same way. as the kids get older, the kids play less unless you are tops. develop? ya the top 15, thats it
Most coaches care more about the kids then their records. PAPA's son getting involved w/coaches is just as bad as JRK moving an entire staff from SLW to JV (that staff except for Malito is way over their skies), and all that is wrong w/JRW! the good old boys on the board made a huge mistake! but look how the ran the eitire JRW side from the split. JV level on both sides w/JRW,JRK has been lacking for years. PAPA's son and daughter are bringing the Mustanges down! its sad for the JRW,JRK side how they handeld that past few years BC they know who their best staff is from both side but wont admit it BC of the certain board members who they kiss their asses. Thank god for high school football BC no politics are involved. i wish you had the same experience i had coaching. It was fun. GL to all NL teams. Just wish the moms who never played the game would stop all the talking and splitting our town up. remember ladies it ends real quick, so my advise would be quit all the BS and enjoy your sons playing and your daughters cheering! The funny thing is most of our kids will play together in high school, and they dont care where you came from but who is on their team today!

I cant help but laugh at all the praise for Emery on this board. You people dont know much about him. My husband and I got to know him and his asistants since he became a coach as our son played for him. He was a decent coach at SLW, but then he was thrown out of the LW wrestling club because of his actions and his disdain for anybody associated with LWWC carried over to football. Why do you think most of his good assistant coaches left him last season, and I heard that the rest of the good ones are done with him and his antics after this past season and are moving to different levels. Emery, his Defense coordinator, and the head AD are a little cliq together. How do you continue to play all starters on defense with 4 minutes left and a 4 touchdown lead? Answer: so his defense buddy can keep the shutout instead of letting some of the 2nd and 3rd stringers get a couple of plays in. Disgusting.

He got thrown out of lwwc because the coward at lwwc caved because warrior football coaches complained and didn't like that he spoke up against the bias involved. Funny thing last year the same coward at lwwc threw out its future leader because he goes along w warrior football

Go to the Mustangs! They play to win, but they will also get a lot of kids in. They losing the majority of the best players off the best 8th football team in the history of 8th grade football

Kinda like Providence. How many kids from New Lenox go to Providence? Oh, but they can do that, they are a private school. Oh yeah, I forgot, Mustangs are a private program too. But using park district and school grounds when half the program isn't even from New Lenox. I forgot, "private program".

I don't care what anyone says....my boys love Coach Emery and Coach Wolfe. And who are most of the "good assistant coaches" that left?

To Love, I thought the same about the good coaches comment. Most of those guys over the last 4 years were good positive coaches. I have seen warrior coaches fight and swear at each other and tell the kids that they were embarrassed. Seen and heard myself at Weds night games.

How did Providence come into this? no different than Bro Rice, Marist, Lao, St Laurence, JCA, or Chicago Christain. They are private and kids come from all over.

We all have some of the same feelings towards playing time. Just remember Wed night game 2-25 min halves that starters cant play(except on phils team), and 20 min 5th quarter game. That is 70 mins of playing time that starters cant play. A regular game is 60 mins. The way i see it sounds pretty equal with starters and non starters. With that said if your team gets a lead of 20+ points you need to pull your 4 starters off the offence side. So i can see why they would stay in the rest of game on D. Shall we punish those kids for doing well? remember most of them where non starters year eariler. The put their time in. And i wish you really had a clue what you were talking about w/LWWC you are so wrong on what really happened. He was asked by a kid to walk him out during a state tourny. He coached that kid every weekend over the season,but he was denied! of coarse the following year it became a football issue like always w/the cliq on the orange/black side. please get you facts straight before you blast someone who does nothing but give up his free time to help the kids! Just wait till high school ball where this BS is over. Just wondering what you will same about that staff if you son doesn't get the playing time you expect.

Maybe he can help you learn to spell. I hope you are one of his players and not a parent because it doesn't look like you graduated high school. You depict a perfect follower of his!!

@someone what in the heck are you talking about? They had no future leaders at the LWWC before Lee and Harvey. Had nothing to do with anyone being a coward. It is true the Knights favor Celtic Elite but its mainly because McDermotts and Gerdes' kids play for the Knights. It's easy to recruit when you're in front of these kids daily.
Hinchy is putting together a fine staff.
With regards to S. Barry I didn't get the memo that you had to play big time football to be a coach or AD. He did play high school ball at Rich South. I can't believe people complain about a town having some of the best kids football around.

Really, Starters? Not at West. And based on the rosters of players at all levels at West, I beg to differ. I was given a roster from a coach with all the players numbers and names at West. Lots of the names I saw seem to have played in NLYFA. And I will go on-line to Atletics2000 for Central and check theirs. I also talked to friend who's son plays at Central, and the names they talk about and who are in first groups are from both programs. Nice to have coaches in charge who had no affiliation with either program. And even if they did, IT SHOULD NOT MATTER. The boys have to show them that.
But as usual, someone here tries to stir the pot. WHO CARES! We have two good youth programs and the young men in high school really don't care anymore. And if you listen to most (and I say most) of the high school coaches, they don't care either. There are a few who have issues and they did play for Mustangs when they were little boys, but sooner or later they will grow up.
NLYFA, Mustangs, keep up the good work.

you parents act like you all were concussed many times in your lives. This is kiddie football. Give me a break. Some people think their kid is destined for a Div 1 college and onto the pros. News flash...Your kids are not that good!

I saw a kids head get twisted like a pretzel and his left leg was dangling by a thread. Needless to say that boy never played football again but opted to play lacrosse instead. He now plays a girly sport. lacrosse sucks!

Football is a dangerous sport. I am working on the fundamental transformation of football as you know it. Change could be painful. The end result will be utopia!
