So I see nothing has been posted here as of yet... I am the wife of a husband that coaches high school football JV and Varsty. He is the defensive line coach and loves his football. My sons 12 and 14 play senior league and JV. So I am on the sidelines in a way and for at least 6 months my life is taken over by football. I gets tough at times because he is gone from very early working his regular job and then being at the school at 3 for practice then he proceeds on the youngest ones practice til 8. On Saturdays coaches meetings and not to mention the phone ringing constantly with the calls from his varsity players wanting stats. When all of this isn't goin on he is watching game films. UGH... I get a little stressed and jealous at times but I know he is having a good time and loves his football. I do howver want more family time during all this Any suggestions???

You know it is funny I am split down the middle. I like that he does things he enjoys. But i think a big thing for me is that my sons are also into all these sports and i just don't know how to get any estrogen in my life. I tend to have to find girl nites once and awhile. But despite that it just doesn't seem like it is enough. Football is over for us right now short of our banquet and a few coaches meetings. Although at times I feel I am second fiddle.... well.... I still am finding that I am second on the list.

my husband just became the varsity football coach and athletic director at his school this year and then decided to do basketball also. He had helped the past three years at our local college with their football team after he graduated from there, so I am some what used to the "I have no husband in the fall". that's kinda why i created this community to vent. I have a 3 1/2 year old and a 4 1/2 month old and I feel like a single mom. My husband is not home usually until after the boys are in bed. We have no energy for each other. I think this is why I have discovered that most football families end up having babies in July-Sept because the season was over 9 months ago. I know this doesn't help you any, but hoping you can continue to vent here if needed! Believe me when I say though at least he is not a college coach because this is cake compared to that. My husband was constantly gone more because of recruiting, stats, practice, reviewing film, meeting other coaches from different towns 30 min- 2 hours away to exchange film. But then again I traded that in for having my husband be gone also during basketball season and the fact that he is the Athletic director does not help either!
