Football is a way of life.
You live
You dedicate your life to the sport, achieve greatness
I was taught from an early age crying and whining gets you nowhere.
you can complain if things..
aren’t going your way.
you can stand up
and change it yourself.
Football is a team sport
There is no I in team but ..
A team needs a leader, who
LEADS, by example
who steps up when s*** hits the fan.

We were playing Hanford our last game...
Our team was giving up everyone was to blame:(
Our Ace back was pissed so he took off his pads.
And Jesus was hurt and everyone was watching
especially the dads
so coach Slater put in
i know why i am built like a tree
I said
“give me the ball coach.. i got this”
Eddie hiked the ball and dropped back
It was a screen! eddie couldn’t miss
I caught the ball and took off
I stiff armed the first linebacker who dove at My feet
It was like slow motion
his face filled with defeat
there was a safety and i was 1 on 1
i knew I could get the job done
I lowered My shoulder and there was a big SMACK
the next thing that kid knew he was flat on his back.
I stepped over his body
like a hunter over hide
i guess thats what happens when u play Sunnyside.
