Week Two of Football

Jacob's game last Thursday Night was a hot one!! His game wasn't quite as hot as the Freshman B team that played before them, but his team sat out in the hot sun before and during that game. I was on the sidelines taking pictures and I was so hot and can't even imagine how those boys felt in pads and helmests running around.

Like I said, it cooled down some when the sun went down, but I think Jacob's team was pretty drained from sitting in the heat for 2 1/2 hours. His team tied 20-20. Thought we were going to win it in the last few seconds, we threw a pass to an open receiver and he was stopped inches short of the goal line. BUMMER!

Here are some pics from that day.

This is some of the B Team players when they came off the field, they are hot and exhausted

Look at that flexibility...NOT

Catching a pass in warm ups

A pass coming to him during the game....

...but #20 broke it up. Bummer because it would have been a touchdown.

Pushing the kid out of bounds

Getting a "good job" from one of the coaches

Making another tackle and then the ref stepped into my shot so I couldn't get the whole tackle

A refreshing drink of water!
