To the Editors:
Football is a fantastic sport. The discipline, fitness, sportsmanship, and team building I have witnessed in Wilton Youth Football is outstanding. Lately, youth tackle football has gotten a lot of bad press, undeserved and inaccurate. It was disheartening to hear that several area towns, including Wilton, aren't able to field a third-grade team. Before parents become scared about letting their sons play tackle, we need to step back and look at the facts.
