It’s here. The time has come. You can feel the excitement. The tension is mounting. Everyone is ready. It’s FOOTBALL!!!!
The Pop Warner football season starts tomorrow. The Treasure Coast league will all be meeting at Okeechobee for the jamboree. It’s going to be a fun season. Kyle is a little disappointed. We have 26 kids on our team and so they have made separate starting defensive and offensive lines. Kyle caught a starting defensive spot but as one of the younger players he’s not the hotshot star he was last year. He has to work for it this year and he is learning this is a tougher game than he thought. Last night he lined up for a tackle on the running back and as I watched I saw the fullback line up on him to block him out of the play and Kyle was flattened. I mean head snapped back, one tank of a kid running full blast hitting another who never saw him coming, it was classic football and my boy was at the receiving end. Crying, partly out of pain and partly from a bruised ego he picked himself back up and made his way back to the huddle. To me, that was all I needed, getting hit is no big deal, getting back up and keeping going is. It’s one of those life lessons football teaches. So, it should be a good year. It should be a good learning year and hopefully if Kyle can maintain weight and have two years as a Mighty Might, next year he’ll be that fullback and it will be his turn to administer the lesson and another will be there to learn and although that’s not the focus it does lead to the QOD:
What opening day or the start of something do you get excited about
