This will be a bragging blog tonight! My son is playing St John's PAL football. He played three years ago and has been playing soccer . I will be honest we are not a football family, we are more of a soccer family. But my son did not play soccer this fall because I failed to registered in time for him to be placed on a team.....So PAL Football it is.
My son will 14 in Oct. He is taller than me (and I am not exactly short at 5 foot 11 ) I would guess he is 6 foot 1 or 2. He wears a size 14 cleat.
The team he is placed with is called the Buccaneers, and they have played a few games with no wins. He is in the red\orange colors and number 66. Tonight my boy scored his very first touchdown! I cringed a LOT. Seeing the many boys it took to bring him down. I prayed a LOT too.
He may have more of a future in football than I prefer, because after the game, the head coach at the local catholic high school approached us . WE had a nice discussion. They want him to come playwith the team......next year . I shared he is homeschooled.... I have much to think about.
Here are some photos from the game...
