There's No High-Sticking in Football.

Posted by Rod Mar

Man, if only my dad gave me a football on a stick when I was 2 so I could whack my little brother in the face with it.

I was covering the University of Washington football team's practice and caught this action off to the side.

Former UW player Spencer Marona brought his two young sons, Sly, 2, and Sal, 1, to the workout and gave them footballs to play with. Sly go the ball attached to a stick that the team uses for some of its drills. Dad looked away for a second and "WHACK", big brother showed little brother who's boss.

Good times.
