Football teams around the Starkville area have enjoyed quite the success over the last few years.
One reason for that might just be the Powerhouse Youth Football Association which takes kids between the ages of 6 and 12 and teaches them the fundamentals of the game.
“This is the second year for Powerhouse, but the league has been established for about 10 years and has really picked up every year it has been established,” Starkville Raiders coach Keith Lawrence said. “Most of the kids in the area have played in the league. The big thing is when they come through this league, you don’t have to teach them how to get in a three-point stance, how to run a route or the right way to tackle. All of the coaches are certified through heads up football so we can properly teach the kids the fundamentals of tackle football.”
