8 teams total now, but doubled in size in just the last 3 yrs.

JERUSALEM On a Thursday night early in December, Pinchas Zerbib took off his traditional cotton skullcap. In its place, he put on a polyester one.

Its my Under Armour yarmulke, Zerbib said. For practice, its better. Plus, its still kosher.

As an orthodox Jew, Zerbib, a native of Israel, believes he must always wear a head covering. He spends his days studying in a yeshiva, or a Talmudic learning institution. But three nights a week, he suits up as a linebacker.
