Her current school will never appear in a list like this, but Brian Sipe is the head coach of the football team, so hopefully he stays on long enough for my spawn to play (8th and 6th grade). Seeing my sons, and knowing their genetics (dad was only D-3 material and not terribly athletic) I don't know if they could have played varsity at those schools so I am glad we've bounced around.

In this case CIF basically refers San Diego county and perhaps the county bordering AZ. So there is now apparently a limited version of a state championship though I am not sure everyone participates.Sipe runs a Wing-T which requires a good deal of discipline and I must admit to being fooled at times as to who has the ball. They start the kids playing flag football from 6th to 8th running that offense. My kids both elected to play the school flag teams this year instead of Pop Warner. (Pop Warner seemed a little daddy-ball-ish to me). One thing Sipe does do is play a very tough schedule. They'll play anyone. Last year we beat (or did we tie?) Helix high which a few years ago had Reggie Bush and Alex Smith as HS teammates. Our 9-12 size is about 400 students. Knowing that, they have to get every able-bodied kid to hopefully play some football. As long as they aren't in some other sport. The Wing-T run correctly is tough to defend if the kids hold their blocks. One nice thing is kids are encouraged to play multiple sports (due to size) which is really hard at the 3000 student schools (you'd better be a stud). So while baseball is where I think my son's talents lie, they both really like football right now. Of course getting knocked on your ass might change that.
