I went to Marion, ILL. On Saturday Aug. 25 to watch the Granite City freshman football game and I was disappointed on what I saw.
The freshman team played hard, but lost 22 - 6. I think the reason for the lost was that the coaching staff did not utilize the players that they have. The coaches used most of the same players the whole game and keep having players play offence and defense and did not use the others from the bench. Also at have time the coach did not talk to the whole team he only talk to the players he had in the game at that time. Maybe the coach is playing favorites.

Maybe the kids on the bench sucked even worse than the kids in the game. Could have been 47-6 if Coach stuck the nose-picking losers in there. Just sayin..

It's called High School football. Not every kid is going to play a lot just cause they signed up. The coaches are going to put the kids in the game that give the team the best chance to win. My guess is your kid isn't any good and thats why they didn't play very much. Also, it called half time, not have time.

@ Redman: Have you ever played the game? Have you ever coached? And this 'favorites'? What the heck. I agree with get a clue. Coaches will use players that will win the game. Those players are the ones that give it 100%. They strive to be the best, so the can start. Work with your kid, help him out, help him to strive to be the best.
@superman: You really shouldn't post anything on this subject...YOU NEVER PLAYED FOOTBALL!!!Don't always believe what you hear. Those comments probably came from kids that sat the bench and had no skill.
