"It is good for the physical and mental beings of both fathers AND sons."
Fathers like Otis Banks, and sons like his, 12-old Jamar Banks. Banks says, when his son first told him about the game, one thought raced through his mind.
On the gridiron, youth has the advantage. No doubt about it. Jamar and his youthful teammates and playmates keep getting their second winds. The 8th grader is a running back and linebacker for the John Sevier Middle School Warriors. But his father Otis has played football before, too.
Today, it's youth versus experience.
Former DB basketball star Rashad Wolfe says, just being able to participate in the game is a blessing.
"The fathers out here are showing their age a little bit," laughed Wolfe. "I think it took a little more work than they thought. I coach a softball team and a T-ball team, but I'll be going home today, eating bananas and trying to get rid of these leg cramps. I think they did well, but the main thing was to get out here with our kids, and spend some time with them."
Meanwhile, one father-son team has a stronger bond after today, after some pretty strenuous play on the flag-football gridiron.
And what did father and son talk about on the way home?
