My Son the All-Star!

In a past post, I told you that my dear 8 year old son had been chosen to play in the Sooner Classic All-Star Football Tournament in Muskogee. We wrapped it up this weekend. Secretly, I am so glad, but then again, I can't believe I'm gonna say this- I really enjoyed football this year, and I might, just might know what is going on before his senior year, LOL! The All-Star team consisted of players from four teams, Braden's team, BA Black, BA Silver, Pryor and Union. These boys only had two weeks to practice together and come together as a team. And, they did! They played a total of 4 games together and came in 3rd place in the tournament and let me tell you the last two games they played AWESOME! My son, know as "Hutch" on the team or by Mom as the "B'ster" or "Baby" actually scored an extra point on a pass, made two first down's on two passes and tackled like a mad man! I am so proud of him. And I might add I did miss his extra point, because I wasn't looking for it, tournament rules let him actually touch the ball where regular season rules didn't- I know BAD BAD Moma! (I'll get the video later!)
Here are the All-Star's

Only a True Football Player could take pride in these bruises.......

.........and this one from a helmet.............
.....honestly, his parents spent $30 on arm pads to protect our baby boy from these blocking bruises, but according to the Coaches and the other players the more bruises like this you have the more evidence that your doing your job on the line! Oh dear, sure hope DHS is not called on me! But a blog is a blog and it is to document these important moments in our children's lives and the B'ster is so proud!
