My son plays football for the high school team.
- My husband and I are very proud of his accomplishments.
He started on the high school team as a freshman. He trained hard throughout the entire summer before his freshman year and the hard work paid off when he was chosen first string for the defensive position. My husband and I went to every single one of the football games during his freshman year and we probably cheered for our son. We were the loudest parents in the bleachers. We still go to all of John’s games. He is a junior this year and he already has some college scouts talking. The football team has a chance of making the state playoffs this year for the first time. The coach found a very talented and gifted quarterback and the young guy has a chance to take this team to the playoffs. Last Friday night, we played one of the toughest games on the schedule and we were ahead when the game was delayed because of snow. My husband and I were in the stands watching John play. It was about 25 degrees outside, but thankfully we had a small battery operated heater under our legs. My husband purchased the battery operated heater from a camping store. It was the best use of $50 and that we might have ever spent. The heater makes it possible for us to enjoy the game without shivering the whole time. Several other parents have heaters as well. It was twenty degrees outside when it started snowing. The referees tried to keep the lines clean, but the snow was falling so rapidly that the game had to be delayed.
