    Check with an NFL or youth football web site for directions to correctly line the fields. I do the local soccer fields and once in a while do a football field. It is easy work once the fields are set.

    but if I was to do it all over again, I would make between the 50 to 45(both sides) the same striping color, and then go out from there

    I stripe soccer fields and the association I do it for doesn't even want the lines mowed. Do it regardless though, just makes life easier. All in the set up of the feild the first time.
