“We still want the kids to play because they earned it, but that would involve taking money away from the kids for their parties and trophies,” Frank said. “The NWTYFA board could still have a change of heart and put us in, but for right now, we’re not seeing it.”
Parents of the Weatherford team said some were verbally and physically attacked at the game in Crowley when coaches and parents of the Crowley team, trailing 14-0 in the third quarter, began accusing the Weatherford team of using players 8 years old. The game was stopped by officials.
Weatherford said they had permission from the association to let three 8-year-old players on the team and said the players participated all season with no problems.
