My son has been practicing pretty hard to get more playing time for this game.  He comes home, does his homework and then heads to practice as soon as we let him.  I’ve never seen him so motivated for anything really.  It’s not only refreshing, it’s downright exciting!  He is a real strong boy and always was atheltically gifted, just never motivated to really do anything with it.  He’s loving this.

So we traveled to Sandpoint Idaho to play the bulldogs.  My son was excited to get some more playing time and actually got some time on defense, enough to put the bulldogs quarterback on his rear a few times.  Way to go son!

The Rams, his team, won without allowing a single score!

Here comes the Rams!

Final team huddle before the start of the game.  It was perfect weather, just a bit colder, but good stuff.  You can see my boy there towards the end with no socks, can't get him to wear socks.

It's almost crazy to see my little boy like this.  But holy cow he looks like a warrior putting on his armor getting ready for some grid iron battle.  Go get em son!

They won the game and are now 2-0 allowing only one score in 8 quarters.  It’s actually a pretty good team and the kids are all having fun and working very hard.  Good job son.
