Plans Underway For New Youth Football League

Socorro Schools football coaches and the cty are beginning a summer football league for children (boys and girls) and their families who are interested in participating.
And from the looks of the kids and the numbers at last week’s special introductory football try-outs, it will be a great success.
Coach Louie Laborin and his family, who are back in Socorro after living and working in Animas, will take charge of the program along with other coaches from Socorro High and hope to have help from volunteer parents and player families.
This inaugural year will have a short season that will last into May, culminating in a Super Bowl at Warrior Stadium at the end of the season. There will be an 8, 9, and 10 year old league and an 11, 12 and 13 year old league. Multiple games will be played at Clark Field on Tuesdays afternoons at 5:30 and 9 Saturday mornings. Laborin says that they will be concentrating on sportsmanship, basic fundamentals, and having fun.
Laborin is asking for volunteer coaches for the many teams that will be playing in this first season. Some of the High School players will be helping as assistant coaches to those interested in coaching a team. Anyone who is interested in volunteering, whether you’re a parent or not – call Laborin at 575-642-4477.
