OKLAHOMA – When Coach T.A. steps on the field, he has his hands full.

Coaching football is a challenge in itself.

But, when your gridiron warriors are 4- and 5-year-olds, anything can happen.

Coach T. A. said it takes patience and perseverance to teach his tiny tackles and tailbacks about football.

But, most importantly, his goal is to teach them about life.

KeyKey Roberson, who nominated Coach T.A. for Pay it 4Ward, said “He motivates them. He leads them. He’s everything to them.”

“If the kids need anything like food, snacks, anything like that, he’ll make sure that they have it,” she said.
