Get kids off electronics and on the field

Six-man football. I’d never heard of it before mid-August.

When I played football, it was the traditional, 11-man variety. Heck, I didn’t even know there was anything else. Playing for Kiona-Benton, my team always had more than enough players to have mostly different players on offense and defense.

But over the last few years, I’ve learned about – and developed an appreciation for – 8-man football.

Along with it, I’ve gained a lot of respect for the athletes playing both sides of the ball.

As most small town football

fans know, 8-man football is a foot race, from start to finish

on both sides...
