Every time I visit this team I am completely blown away. The coaches and kids are pushing themselves beyond any natural limits. It is driven by history - all the coaches played in the league - for the Gators or before that for Morningside. The Gators are supported by parents and grandparents and sisters who are all in. The kids are both scared and brave when they pull on their helmets and find shoulders pads to lace up. They start at age 5 - stretching, running, blocking - literally learning the ropes.
