Tom Landry said it best:

"Football is an incredible game. Sometimes it's so incredible, it's unbelievable"

It truly is and it starts with Junior Football. Ann Arbor has a long-standing Junior Football tradition going back to when John and Jim Harbaugh played here, for the Junior Packers.

Today, this tradition continues with the Washtenaw Blue Junior Football, Jr. Wolverines. We need your child. We want him/her to be a part of our team, to share in the comradery of competition, the joy of team success, and to become a part of the Washtenaw Blue tradition.

"Junior football in Ann Arbor was where it all began for me. Through football, I learned powerful lessons about self-discipline, perseverance, and teamwork while playing the game I loved with boys who became my lifelong friends. If you ask me, there is no better sport for teaching the most important lessons in life”
- Jim Harbaugh

Other parents ask why I let my sons play football. Here’s what I tell them.

If I had a dollar for every time…no wait a minute—if I had a dime for every time either my wife or I received a dirty look from someone because we let our son Bradley participate in youth tackle football, I’d be a very wealthy man (and able to donate money to our local program to make substantial upgrades.)
