  • May not advance the ball (except in the case of a fumble or an interception)

Restricted players will be allowed to participate on the punt team, punt return team, kickoff team, and kick return teams, but may not advance the ball (except in the case of a fumble).

The restricted position policy applies to players as follows:

  • 4th grade, 115 lbs & up
  • 5th grade, 125 lbs & up
  • 6th grade, 135 lbs & up


Food Bowl

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas sponsors our annual Food Bowl for our 6th grade tackle football teams. Each of our 6th grade teams get to play one extra game at Kimbrough Stadium. Spectators are asked to bring $1 or one can of food to be donated to the High Plains Food Bank for Thanksgiving time.

Player's Equipment

Kids, Incorporated provides each child with a helmet, shoulder pads, and pants with pads, all of which are to be returned as soon as the season ends. Mouthpieces will also be issued, however, we won't need these back!  Once a team has a total of 15 paid players (complete with signed parent waivers), the coach may submit the team roster to our office and signup for an equipment checkout time.

Coaches Equipment

Each Coach is provided 2 footballs and a tee.
