The Gooding Recreation District forbids her: No girls allowed. Legarreta feared for his future as a youth football coach in Gooding after registering his stepdaughter and a friend of hers, Justice Prince, and allowing them to practice for his fifth-grade Gooding football team/Nick Ruland, Twin Falls Times News. More here. And: Photos here.

Question: Should girls be allowed to play recreation football?
