For parents who dream of raising a gifted, young football player, New York City isn't exactly the best place to do it.
No matter how talented your kid is (just watch how they hurl all those stuffed animals out of their crib and across the room; he's a natural, I tell you!), the opportunities are limited.
The City Parks have a flag football league, there's the Empire State Youth Football and Cheer League, Pop Warner, Manhattan Youth Football and a few others. (Soccer, on the other hand, we've got plenty of.)
But, the worst part of it is where - and with whom - to practice.
Not only are many NYC parents too busy to spend hours throwing a football back and forth with their future Hall of Famer, a cramped apartment filled with breakables isn't really the best place to practice throwing - or catching - field-long passes, either.
Luckily, PassBack Football has developed a solution (odds are they weren't thinking specifically about the needs of young, gifted NYC football players, but it turned out to be perfect for city-dwellers, nonetheless)!

Remember that Brady Bunch episode where Peter couldn't decide whether to play football or sing in the glee club (oh, come on, you know you do! Deacon Jones?). For kids who like both football and music, check out The Worldwide Dessert Contest: Enhanced Multimedia Edition by Dan Elish, a middle grade fantasy novel about desserts that come to life... and sing showtunes.
