One of the rules we’ve established is that everyone plays every position in this league, regardless of athletic ability.

Everyone will spend time at key positions such as quarterback, middle linebacker and as team captains.

While in those positions, they will assume leadership out of necessity. Some will naturally do better than others, but everyone will get experience in leadership.

Team coaches will be able to see how each player does in the leadership role and look for opportunities to place each player in positions to lead and succeed on and off the field.

The thought is, if kids can get the experience of successful leadership on the field, when the time comes for them to assume a leadership position off the field, they will have some experience to draw from and make good choices.
