    Girls should have the right to try but they will meet tough resistance. I played up through the 9th grade and did well at that level. In high school girls have pretty much quit growing and guys have really just started. I played in Oklahoma and was boo'ed by a lot of people on both sides of the field and sometimes they boo'ed even louder when I did something good. And if you play and are any good there will be someone who will have to try and prove a girl can't hang. My ACL got tore by a very late hit in the enzone after I ran a punt back for a touchdown.

    So, girls be warned if you do play, and it should be your right, watch out for idiots.

    Wow great question. To start in high school I played on the same freshman team as the first girl ever to play football in my school. She wasn't treated differently then any other player, and once she had a helmut and pads on it was nearly impossible to tell her sex. The opposite however, brings up a very interesting legal question. Naturally people want to say no, since guys are more athletic than girls giving them an unfair advantage. However, i'm not sure legally, the school can stop males from participating without have a male volleyball team.

    Personally I would not let my Daughter play, I would not want her to get hurt by a much larger Boy! Boys your same age will weigh an average of 160 to 210 lbs, Bench 180-230 and squat upwards of 250 to 350 on average. Please think about your physical well being! I know it sounds sexist but it is also reality we are not equal in all things males and females are different in many ways and that is a good thing!
