"Over the years, I've often been asked if I encourage elementary students to play youth football. I always say it depends. If the coaches love the boys, love the Lord and have a patience as they teach fundamental skills, it can be a great experience. The Cahaba Valley Lions have lived up to my expectations every year as the coaches have been "the right kind of men to lead our boys." Many of my fine high school players got their start with the young Lions and fell in love with the game. The memories made and the lessons learned often last for a lifetime. I am a big supporter of the Lions and look forward to seeing our young boys play at Lion's Pride Stadium this fall."
