Football – Fall 2009

And then there’s football.  Judah’s been playing since August 2.  And it’s been grueling.  And it’s be scorching.  Until last week, at 5:30 pm when they start practice, it’s been 102°F on average.  Finally, this last week it broken down to about 95° on average; a relative cold front.  And so until recently, you might understand why on the way to practice, there’s almost been tears.  On the backend though, we’re almost laughing on the way home.  Finally though, it’s leveled out.

The first game last Saturday didn’t go as planned.  Too many fumbles.  Too many missed tackles.  Too many penalties.  And fairly poor on special teams.  And Pflugerville had a 2 or 3 guys faster than we’d seen thus far.  So, though our offense did have some real success in moving the ball, we never saw the endzone.  A shame really since our misdirections and well executed fakes made us quite competitive.  In the end, we held them to 1 TD per quarter stopping half the point-after attempts.

And so, practice this week has been tough, but in reality easier thanks to a much gentler sun.  Oh, and actually had some rain recently.  Thanks El Nino.
