A youth football team in Rhode Island has been suspended for bringing in a 20-year old secret weapon.
The Capital City Buccaneers youth football team in Providence, R.I. has been suspended from their league indefinitely after a coach tried to pull off the most illegal play possible, playing a non-youth.

A man thought to be in his late teens was captured on camera suiting up and briefly playing during a youth football game meant for 13 and 14 year old’s this weekend.
“I could zoom right in and see the facial hair,” said parent Kevin Stockwell. “You know most 13 year old’s are starting to get facial hair. This gentleman had facial hair and had arm tattoos.”
Number 84 for the Capital City Buccaneers got in the game right after halftime, lasting a few plays before refs realized what was going on and pulled him out.
“It was a disgrace to me to our organization because that’s not what we stand for,” said Alexandra Diaz the founder of the Buccaneers.
No explanation has been offered for the move. But what we do know is that it happened when Diaz stepped away. It was then that the coach of the team called over one of the player’s older brothers and told him to suit up and get out there.
Fortunately, the jig was spotted before he could go Beast Mode and possibly cripple one of those kids.
