Football Friday

Last night our football team played in it's first Passing League - a passing league is where a number of teams get together and play 7-on-7 games where there is only passing allowed. There were 8 teams there and we played 5, 20-minute games.

Love this pic of Ronald smiling and helping up Tyler - this is one of the joys of coaching young men. Ron is going to be a Senior and not only is he a good-looking athlete (yep, those are muscles folks) but he also carries a 4.6 gpa!!!


One of the teams we faced was our in-district rival (it means nothing here, but I'd like to say that this team has NEVER defeated us at ANY level in football!!!!)


...and this would be a reason why - as G Florio picks off the pass and takes it all the way for a Defensive Touchdown!


Gotta coach up those young kids - this pic has 4 sophomores out of the 7 kids - summer passing is also a great time to get those young kids good experience


Not sure here - maybe auditioning for Subway (insert $5 footlong jingle)


And there is my FAV follower - Colin loves to be around me and the kids - he knows most of them by name and jersey number and does a great job of cheering them on!
Best of all, we played ALL 26 kids we brought for defense and even managed to grab 7 interceptions and return 3 of them for touchdowns! Saturday we do this again in a tournament-style competition with 16 teams participating - gonna be a looooong day!
