Texas youth football team ruled out of playoffs for ‘too good’

The top team in a Texas youth football association was left out of the playoffs after officials ruled the team was “too good,” a league official said.

The Flower Mound Rebels, which are made up of 7 and 8-year-olds, had a perfect record and had beaten their opponents 199-6, Keller Youth Association vice president Rhett Taylor told NBC Dallas-Fort. Worth.

Taylor, whose own side were beaten 33-0 by the Rebels, told the station the team had “dominated” the recreational-level league – a performance that led to the decision to exclude them from the league. playoffs.

“They are too good. I fully admit that, “he said.” They are a tight level team. They are too good for a rec level team.

If the team made it to the league’s Super Bowl, he added, “I’m going to have a problem with Keller’s parents.”

The Rebels joined the league last year during the pandemic. In an interview with NBC Dallas-Fort Worth, coach Ragan Montero called Taylor a “sore loser” and accused him of “changing the rules to make it better for him.”

Center Greyson Tanner, 8, told the station the move made him “very sad.”

“I think we deserve to play in the playoffs,” he said.
