The Mansfield little league football sign-ups are days away. With the BIG changes made during off-season, the coaches are hoping for a BIG turn out at sign-ups.
One of the changes made by the little league board was the decision to join the newly created West Central football league which allows a more even playing field for schools similar in size.
Mansfield little league football president Josh Strozier had this to say about the upcoming season.
“I began my little league journey three years ago when my son started playing football in the third grade. This year we have the opportunity for change. And, with this change we are hoping to increase our numbers and bring some fun and spirit back into our community. We believe it will be beneficial for not only our school, but for the other schools in the league by helping the kids find their strengths and allowing them to grow within themselves and as a team.”
The little league players of today will be the senior high players of tomorrow.
