Thank you very much for your column. I played six man and eight man in high school and it was as,if not more exciting, than anything I saw and/or experienced as a manager on the 1968 national championship team at Ohio State. In six man every player is eligible to receive a pass and the ball has to be either handed off, pitched or passed before it could cross the line of scrimmage. Lots of reverses, double reverses and long passes to the center. You had to be sure of your tackling or the guy was gone. Ask the retired track coach and champion pole vaulter from Esky how wild it was when he taught in Mackinaw City and had a brute of a team.
