What is your football experience?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Played jr high, loved playing but I was small. Got nailed so hard one time over the middle....sent me into early retirement. It was one of those Kurt Warner ones. Wrestling cross country, went that route....

Re: What is your football experience?

Played Pony/Junior League, High School and on a couple Base teams for 2dMarDiv, 3dMarDiv, 4thMarDiv, though I'd usually deploy at some time during a season, #shrug.

Always played OL/DL, lotta' left tackle & nose guard ... pretty much anything I wanted to accomplish on a football field could be done in that little box a couple yards either side of the line of scrimmage, .

Did help out at my son's school as an assistant line coach/booster, but the game had changed to the point that most the stuff I remember as being effective, ie hand shivers, forearm shivers, blocking with your head, et ... were outlawed so I pretty much resigned myself to just being a motivator/mentor-type, organizing chili cook-off fundraiser stuff and whatever else needed to be done, Go Huskies! .

Re: What is your football experience?

Pee Wee got hit so hard by the bigger kids my mom pulled the plug. JR. High played S ans RB. I played S well enough but at 80 lbs. as a RB it don't cut it. High School started out at lb. a 115 lb. is a hard roll to go. Grades, women and xtra coricular activities(puff,puff,pass) kind of got in the way after that. Til' today I like smash-mouth football, and especially a great D.

So I was a baseball/basketball player throughout HS.

Coach softball now and then.
Same for me. I have loved football my entire life but mother would have no part in it. I played baseball for 15 years but that is about it for my sports career.

Re: What is your football experience?

Trained but never actually played a full game with the Leicester Panthers in the UK.

If you check the stats you will see that Sean Payton was the QB and Coach for the Leicester Panthers but not when I was with them.

GEAUX SAINTS!!!

Re: What is your football experience?

This may be hard to believe but I was too much of a puzzy for tackle.
Always could make a complete idiot laugh though.
Tackle Football - Short career Middle School 7th Grade... broke arm in practice.

SWIMMING TEAM - Two State Championships in High School

Funny Story -
Sophomore in High School
PE Class Exam I did 43 push ups in 30 seconds hitting the ground every time (expert in Butterfly) then I ran the 440 in 58 seconds (that's once around the track field 440 yards 1/4 mile in under one minute) since I swam one mile everyday in swimming practice. The coach wanted me to come out for track. I told him "Hell No" our team was State Champs and besides, no one stunk in the locker room, I never sweated, I never got bruised or hurt and besides, at the swimming meets there were girl teams with suits that weighed about 1 ounce. He told me to GTFOUH and he would never ask me again. Needless to say, we became good friends. LOL

Never played or coached football. But I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night.

All thru High School. Was set to tryout in 87 for the Saints, but got scammed by this agent out of New York.
