Most of the teams the Mighty-Mites have played so far have many more players on their rosters than their 16 boys. Many of the Bruins play the whole game without coming out for a break.
"They all play hard and tough and we are very proud of them," Coach Steve Stevenson said.
"Our MM team this year is like The Dirty Dozen, when we first started practices, they were all over the place," Head Coach Mike Pennington said. "As the season has gone on they have become a true team. They have all grown so much and have learned to work together as a team. They play with more heart than I have seen, they don't complain and never ask to come off the field, even if they don't get a break for an entire game. This is my first year coaching Mighty Mite football and I'm very proud of these boys."
Bear River center Tyler Stevensons #15 is the anchor to his team's offensive line. He said he does not eat prior to the game because he has to get up so early and he does not want to get a stomach ache.
"I love to play football because my friends play and you get to hit people, it is a fun sport," Tyler Stevenson said. "It teaches me to be nice because if you get in trouble at school you do down ups at practice and it teaches me how to be strong."
The Mighty-Might division does not keep score, the boys play to learn and for the love of the game.
