Week 1 of 2009 Fall Leagues

From a Buddy Holly look-alike official, to kids coaching, to parents scorekeeping, it was an eventful week 1 in fall leagues this weekend. I'll spare you all the obvious Weezer reference, but I will tell you that Minnehaha's Parker Hines pulled double duty by coaching the JVs in the morning before playing in the afternoon session on Saturday. That's an idea that I like a lot for developing kids as leaders.

We had upsets, tight finishes and big performances. That included a kid who blew up huge on Sunday but is flying under the radar. D2s, if that name isn't on your radar, why not? I think the kid deserves that kind of look.

Read about all of it in my Minnesota Preps column (click here)

Also, I'm keeping my season totals up to date with fall league and AAU action this season. The 1st updates are posted here.

BTW, I feel like a total fool for mentioning Ellsworth, MN as playing the in the MYAS league in Forest Lake. Looks like they played in Sioux Falls. I'm a Wisconsin guy and I forgot Ellsworth, WI. DOH!
