League: Texas boy too big to play peewee football
Question of the Day
MESQUITE, TEXAS (AP) - A suburban Dallas boy has been barred from playing peewee football because the league says he’s just too big at nearly 300 pounds.
Mesquite Pee Wee Football Association President Ronnie Henderson says the rule is clear and 12-year-old Elijah Earnheart is not eligible. The 6-foot-1-inch boy exceeds the 135-pound limit for seventh-graders.
Henderson says he’s looking out for the safety of all the kids.
Elijah’s mother and coach want him reinstated before the Mesquite Viking’s first game on Saturday. They point to an exception in the rulebook that might allow him to play certain line positions.
