180-200 lbs is pretty good size in high school. That’s as big as most high school boys.

I wasn’t nearly that big in high school lol

Me neither. I was 6'1 and weighed 145 pounds. I played safety and WR but there were several hits that made me want to quit. Pops wouldn't let me quit and I am thankful for it.

Yeah. I was like 5’11 and 140 lbs. I was a bean pole. That girl from St Amant’s football team probably could have knocked the shite out of me lol.

Many times, Coach Brooks told us we played like girls. He had a more colorful way of saying it, but we did pick up on the meaning of what he was yelling.

I've officiated several games with a girl on the field. In most cases, she's there because she can knock the hell out almost anyone against her.

Had a receiver say ..."Man she hits harder than anyone I've ever played against."

I replied ...

"Imagine dating her."

What positions were they playing? DL? Linebacker?

There was one here at Cartersville but she self identified as a male and ended up playing for Clemson.

re: Have you ever played on a football team with a girl on it?
I coached a middle school team with a girl DE and she was the best player on defense, no bull shite. She also gave 100% every play, never gave up on a play, and honestly might have been the best player I have coached (Ok, in fairness I coached Dylan Mosses at U-High in middle school and he was the best above and beyond lol).

She was the heart of the defense too. I do not know if the kids were intimidated or she just really had their respect.

She used her own locker room, and the was literally that only difference of having her on the team.

If you have a girl (any girl) who can start and make legitimate plays in some offensive or defensive role on your team, your league sucks.

She was a linebacker. Caught that receiver on a quick slant across the middle just in front of the Umpire .....Night night termite.

The hardest hit I ever experienced playing was from a guy with one arm ....That was in the day when they broke the tube and stuck the cotton alcohol swab under your nose to wake you. He was a linebacker.

If so, how did she do? Was she big and strong enough to physically compete pretty well against the boys?

I coached a girl in middle school here in East Tennessee. It was the early 90’s and I was just a young assistant coach. She was great, she wasn’t that big, but she was a great athlete, tough as hell. She would get the hell knocked out her and would jump right up. She started at wr on a good middle school team.
Her teammates respected the hell out of her. The local news even did a story on her. She was a dominant athlete though, she was a outstanding basketball player in middle and high school. There is just not too many like her that I’ve seen. She didn’t play football in HS.

Did the boys all pass her up in height and weight by that time?

No. I grew up when boys were boys and played boys sports and girls were girls and played girls sports.

We also didn't get a trophy just for participation.

re: Have you ever played on a football team with a girl on it?
We had 2 come out for Freshman football in 1979. One was tougher than shoe leather.....I knew her for many years and she was the physical equal of any boy our age. The other one lasted one practice. Actually only about half of one practice. The tough one made it through 3 practices.....2 on one day and the third the next morning. She was tough but she had never ran like we ran during 2 a days in July and August. I doubt it had anything to do with her being female and all about simply not having sons that sort of shite since she was 6 or 7 like most of had.....we knew that puking and passing out was part of football. It wasn’t physiologically draining for us....but she had never experienced it before and she probably thought she was dying....as we all did the first few times it happened to us....but we had dads and coaches urging us to continue....she was alone. I don’t think many females could play competitive high school football but more than do could....

My first summer camp took me 3-4 days to physically recover from.

Ours lasted from the second week after school got out until school started. We were allowed 2 weeks off and then expected to be in the weight room and watching film for the next 2 weeks....then the fun really began with 2 a days. PT only in the morning, weight room the rest of the day and then actual practice in the evening with wind sprints etc. 5 days a week and if we weren't in the weight room on Saturday we would hear about it. We did get our asses kicked soundly in a state semi final my Junior year so I guess it kind of paid off LOL...it was brutal. This was back in the day when we thought water would make you cramp and salt pills were still a thing. It really is amazing more of us didn't die but we were accustomed to the heat and humidity more so than we are today....

When I look back on two a days starting on July 15th in South Florida when I played it's a wonder no one died of heat stroke. One water bucket with a single ladle to drink out of.

It was barbaric but we didn't know it until someone told us it was LOL. Helicopter parents today would have to be rushed to the ER if their baby was subjected to what we considered normal treatment....back in the day parents wouldn't even be there except on a rare exception.

I doubt seriously if all of that made us any better at football but I have NO doubt it made us more resilient and willing to stick it out and get it done. I work with young folks and I worked with young soldiers and they all would stop if things got hard and it takes an monumental amount of cajoling to get them started again and to the finish. I have never done in anything in my career that was hard as running that damn hill at 1500 in July....everything else has come pretty easy!
