My oldest son Beau played freshman football this year. They were a really good little team, 7 and 2 in fact!
He loved it and wants to play all the way through high school. I couldn't be happier about that. Here are some reasons why...when a player gets hurt from either team the whole team gets down on one knee(such respect), the strength behind a team is amazing and being a single Mom you can use all the help you can get. They listen to their coaches way more than they do their parents. Here is an example, "Mom guess what coach said, he said high school is all about time management" I must have told Beau that like a million times, but coach says it and he hears it. I could care less who he gets the message from as long as he gets it.
This week they had the football banquet. Here is a quote from one of the coaches "Your son will walk out of -----high school a better person, a better son, a better brother and one day a better husband and father" Music to a Mother's ears! Thank you freshman Coaches! I am so grateful for the time you put in to make these boys better men. Let me know where I can sign up to get you guys a raise:)
