I played six man football in the late 50’s in North Carolina. Recently I googled you tube six man football. Texas has about 200 small high school six man teams. The clips posted vary in length. Some are game film. Some feature the small Texas towns and youngsters who play today. One team has only six players on the squad. Yet state playoffs feature the same rabid atmosphere as all high school teams.
While the kids are mostly small, there is some “de-cleating” out there. The field is 80 yards long rather than 100yds. Think about it, six players (or 12 on both teams) on 80 yds vs eleven (22) on 100. Lots of space and speed and fun. Check ’em out–the youngsters are great.
And no, they don’t play 3 man basketball.
