Jacob's Sophomore football team is 4-0. We played our district rival last week and we won! I was just as excited for Jacob to beat this team as I was when Matthew's Varsity team beat them! Unfortunately this game doesn't count, except for the bragging rights until we play them again at their place. This game was a filler game for a team who cancelled on us. Hopefully we can play just as well next meeting and have the same outcome!
We got poured on for some of the game. Luckily it didn't last the whole game or there wouldn't be as many pictures

The half time score. We started off down 0-10, but changed our defense and the offense quit turning the ball over.

Defense on the field. Jacob is on the far right

Getting ready to hold them !

The parents getting into it!

Jacob going to try to block a field goal

He didn't block it, but they didn't make it either

With under a minute left, Jacob tackles the guy and knocks the ball out

A happy dad and the guy next to him is Jacob's  Jr High  coach and the guy next to him was his Youth football coach.

The other team calls their last time out

The defense getting instructions

The parents are on their feet

And we pick off the pass! Jacob is behind the guy who made the interception and in that chaos, Jacob got hit hard in the shin.

Jacob grabbing his leg. It is still sore, but he is ok to play!


There are a bunch of happy people wearing maroon! (The people in red weren't as happy)
