Coach Shane Laurent and Coach Steve Barlow have a lot in common: both are fathers of three boys, both have about a decade of youth-coaching experience, and both believe that every kid should have the chance to learn their favorite game as early as possible. Backed by the Youth Football Coaches Association, years of experience on the field, and Houston Texans linebacker Connor Barwin, the two mastermind game plans for athletes aged 3–12 at Totball.
Totball's miniaturized version of an American pastime forgoes competition and tackling in favor of fostering camaraderie among teammates as they learn football basics. Girls and boys huddle up for fun-infused drills that hone agility, blocking techniques, kicking, passing, and catching. At the end of each session, parents get a scouting report highlighting their child's progress, strengths, and success in avoiding the temptation to see whether the ball might secretly be filled with candy.:m]]
M&R's team of experienced roofers is adept at restoring luster and prolonging the lives of any sullied shingles. During their visit, the trained technicians apply a nontoxic, organic treatment designed to dispatch grime, pollution, bacteria, mold, mildew, and rogue Frisbees from befouled roofs. The treatment prolongs the life of the roof by cutting down on rotten happenings, which also improves the home's overall curb appeal. Safe for roofs and surrounding greenery, the cleansing fluids are distributed via hoses—rather than high-pressure washers—that rinse the surface without ravaging the structure.
