Demias Jimerson has the “Madre Hill Rule” implemented

In Demias Jimerson’s (a 6th grade running back) last game he scored 7 touchdowns. Therefore the league (Wilson Intermediate Football League in Arkansas) had to implement a rule they hadn’t used since it was created; the “Madre Hill Rule”. This rule states that if a team is up by 14 and a player has 3 or more touchdowns he can’t score anymore touchdowns. That makes sense, everyone does need to play and get the experience (I stole that from the principal Terri Bryant).

The kid is very talented, and it’s cool that he understands whats happening and is cool with it.

Next year the rule is no longer in effect (it’s only for 5th and 6th graders), so i believe his coaches aren’t too upset.
