Yesterday was Evan's second football game and he had a blast! I did, too! I wasn't trying to capture it on video, so I felt like I got to just enjoy it more. I did take some pics with my new camera with the zoom lens, but it was usually at the beginning of a play or at the end of the play. I did get some good pics (in my opinion, anyway).
The coach put the kids in different positions for this game, and it was fun to see how they did in these new positions. Evan played center for the second half, and was pretty good. Some of the kids had trouble snapping between their legs and getting it to the quarterback, but Evan and the quarterback connected every time. He seemed to enjoy this position, too. He ran with gusto to the ball. It was really cute! Other parents noticed, too.
On defense, Evan moved to right corner for this game. He made 2 or 3 tackles from this position. He was this excited after every one. I loved watching him!
Steve and I were both impressed with his effort, too. He would keep running and chasing after guys. He even caught up to some of them. He didn't give up on the play, and that is a good quality/skill that we hope continues with him in life.
We have a break today (Sunday), but then there's the weekly practice Monday and a make-up game on Tuesday night. Next Saturday will be a regular game again, so our frenzy is just beginning. Stay tuned for more updates!
