Eastern Michigan Head Coach Pens Powerful Letter To Potential Football Moms

To Moms of boys wanting to play football,

Growing up on the West Coast, I played every sport I could - soccer, basketball, baseball, tennis, I swam and for a short period I was even in a bowling league, but the only time I got to play football was at school during recess. I am pretty sure that the universal rules of recess football are still the same: Two-hand touch (when the recess lady was watching), one run per every four downs, two completions for a first down and we always debated whether we were going to count “Alligator” or “Mississippi” to rush the passer. 

My parents never allowed playing organized football to be an option for me. They didn’t want me to get hurt. In the spring of eighth grade, the high school football coach came to our middle school to talk to a bunch of us about playing high school football. I was interested in soccer and the other sports at the time but playing football was definitely intriguing. My mom still would not let me play.

Torrey Pines Pop Warner to partner with NFL Flag for Spring Flag Football

Torrey Pines Pop Warner has announced that it plans to partner with NFL Flag Football to form spring flag football teams that will practice and play in the Carmel Valley area.

NFL Flag Football plays six-man flag football games that allow both running and passing. Torrey Pines Pop Warner says it plans to form several teams of 7-9 kids in each age group in an effort to give each child as much playing time as possible.

“Our goal is to make kids fall in love with the game of football. This is a great opportunity for kids to have a lot of fun, develop skills and get a ton of playing time,” said Pop Warner Board Member Ward Wilsey. “My kids played on an NFL Flag team this past fall, and I couldn’t have been more impressed.”

While there will be several teams per age division, the teams will practice together in an effort to learn the offensive and defensive techniques used by actual Torrey Pines Pop Warner teams, which are based on the same strategies used by the Torrey Pines High School Football Team.

“Our goal is to develop kids from the flag level all the way until they get to high school. We want to make sure they fall in love with the game, and have the skills and knowledge necessary to eventually play in the Torrey Pines Program.”

To sign up for the Torrey Pines Pop Warner Spring Flag League, parents should sign up at and email a copy of their receipt to

Temecula Valley Mighty Mite Coach Eddie Rangel

The Popular Mighty Mite Fighting Bears Touched Many Lives and will be Greatly Missed by the Community


In the early morning of Sunday, July 26th, Eddie Rangel, 36, passed away in his sleep for reasons unknown. Eddie was a disabled veteran, amazing father, wonderful husband, incredible friend to many. He was also dedicated and inspirational coach with Temecula Valley Pop Warner.

Coaching was Rangel’s passion. Nothing made him prouder than sharing his love of football with his sons and watching them excel on the field. He inspired so many players to always give their best and play with heart. He coached the Mighty Mite Fighting Bears with Temecula Valley Pop Warner during the 2014 season while commuting over 2 hours each way to work a full time job at Vencore.

Coach Rangel was always present and ready to teach the youth of Temecula his love and passion for the game of football. He dedicated countless volunteer hours to making sure each of his players were conditioned, practiced safely, and were driven to excel on the field. Rangel was starting his second season with Temecula Valley Pop Warner to coach his youngest son’s Mighty Mite team and help coach his older son’s Junior Pee Wee team.

Donations to the family can be made at any US Bank location to the Eddie Rangel Family Memorial Fund to help the family in their time of need. The account # is 157505726693 and routing # if needed for online deposits is 122235821.
