At the young age of 11-years-old, Demias Jimerson reminds a lot of people of Razorback great Madre Hill.

"If you were looking at them you would say they were very much similar," said Darryl Baker, who coached Hill and now referees Jimerson's games. "I mean they both run really fast, good kids, run with the same style."

Like Jimerson, Hill attended Wilson Intermediate School and dominated the football field so thoroughly, the league invoked what came to be known as the Madre Hill Rule. Once Hill scored three touchdowns, if his team had a 14-point lead, officials banned him from scoring any more touchdowns. Now, for the first time since, the Wilson Intermediate Football League is using the Madre Hill rule again -- to tackle Demias Jimerson.

"I got, kinda got shocked because I didn't know that was gonna happen, but it did," said Jimerson. Adding, "I'm ok with it."

Principal Bryant, the defacto commissioner of the Wilson Intermediate Football League, says the rule isn't meant to punish Jimerson. It's there to help the other fifth and sixth graders on the field develop as football players too.

"The other players on both teams, 21 are just left sort of, this is all Demias," she said. "So that's why the Madre Hill Rule has been implemented."

But the Madre Hill rule is only for fifth and sixth grades. Next year, Jimerson goes to seventh grade.

"I'm gonna run hard and bring our team to victory," said Jimerson. Then he added, "but God always comes first, before anything, and grades second."

God, grades, then touchdowns -- Madre Hill Rule or not.

Jimerson played a couple of games this season before the Wilson League invoked the Madre Hill Rule. In one of those games, he scored seven touchdowns. Jimerson's team is undefeated.

I'm curious because the title of the YouTube video says he was benched but the explanation of the rule just says he is "banned from scoring anymore touchdowns". Still...I have never heard of anything like this rule and I was involved in Pop Warner football when my kids were at that age range. Usually once it becomes obvious that your team is going to slaughter the other team you sub heavily and go to 3rd/4th/5th string assignments. You don't take a kid out just because he is very effective and you have a two score lead. Crazy.

I used the search function and didn't find anything. If Q, bite me. At least it's football related.

According to Chiefzilla, if we manage to wind up drafting RG3, we will give up so many picks that we will have no chance at this kid when he turns pro.

It's a hybrid of Damian and Darius.

All of the articles I saw appear to be from last Fall.

Not my cup of tea, I went with classic names for my kids. My son's name actually forms a complete sentence when translated.

In fact the etymology of my son's name is...

First name: Hebrew to Greek to Latin to English

Second name: Mesopotamian to Hebrew to English

Last name: Gaelic

I thought you were kidding about the combined names. Makes no difference to me, I just sometimes wonder where people come up with some of these names.

I looked it up after your post. It's one of those odd interests of mine.

I just think it's cool that our names have meanings other than the sounds that we identify each other with. If you think about it, the process of naming a child used to be about assigning a meaning. Like a special message to your children. Or an important declaration. The modern way of doing it is to just pick a sound that you agree with or to follow some familial naming convention.

I'll never figure out why my parents named me Dixon with a last name like Hand.

Last name: GaelicAh, so you're one of those people who will pick a normal name like "Eric", but then spell it a weird way like "Erykk." When people are like, "Dude, that's dumb" you tell them, "Not so. It's the Welsh spelling" they back off and all of a sudden think it's unique and awesome.

LMAO No, not in the least bit. Did you miss the last part or something?

I can PM it to you. I am hyper paranoid about stuff like that, so please keep it off the board, but you're pretty cool and I don't think you would do that.
