Absolutely love doing this kind of stuff. Great family atmosphere team bonding for our flag players up to 11u.

Edit: I'm trying to add a few pictures and I can't figure it out.

Fun story. 

I was first introduced to MOJO in the early 90's. My team of all stars was playing in a National Tournament. We played a team from rural Utah that beat us in ways I had never experienced before. The final score was 18-0 but it felt like 118-0. My players didn't want to play anymore once the 4th quarter hit. I was dumbfounded. 

Ran into their coach at the hotel later on. His players and my players were now playing air hockey and the like together and having a blast. I asked him to teach me....so he did. 

One item was movie night. He would plug in NFL's greatest hits and an hour later he is pealing kids off the ceiling they are so amp'd. 😎

Anyhoo's....I implemented many of his team building ideas over the years and never looked back proving too me that football is indeed about 80% mental. 

What is beautiful, lives forever.

@mahonz We watched "Little Giants" on a projector on the field with concessions open and all family members invited. Is getting amp'd watching biggest hits more of a players only thing? I'm not sure I'd get parents to come back if I had their kids jumping off the walls all night.

LOL....very true. Your comment just reminded me of that crazy coach that taught me a lesson. 😎
