The Napa league has 16 teams that are each coached by a Justin-Siena football player. There are practices or games from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. each Sunday. Each team will have a Sunday in which it plays a doubleheader, so it has 10 games overall. Standings are kept on an app. Each division will have a four-team playoff and a Super Bowl at the end.
Each grade level has four teams with the mascots Bears, Cornhuskers, Gators and Trojans, sporting the colors of Cal, Nebraska, Florida and USC, respectively.
The coaches are Seth Morrison, Mav Heun, Tyler Charifa and Xaelan Arcia for the kindergarteners and first-graders, Bryce Laukert, Jonas Gonzales, Caden Parlett and Aidan Cushing for the second- and third-graders, Angel Garcia, Hudson Beers, Blake Hoban and Solomone Anitoni for the third- and fourth-graders, and James Snoke, Grant Koehler, Miles Williams and Marcus Nunes for the sixth- and seventh-graders.
“It’s a ton of fun for everyone involved,” LaRocco said. “I have received a lot of real positive feedback from parents, thanking me for doing this and how this is such a great thing for the community.”
Each game has two 25-minute halves. Players are able to be on teams with their friends, and they have uniforms with numbers and their last names on them.
A few teams have girls participating.
