Saturday Football - Zachary

Zachary's team played their final game on Saturday morning. They won 44-22. Zachary scored two touchdowns, as he got their at the start of the 2nd half (I'll explain below). Zachary did well, running a reverse on two different occasions for 2 touchdowns, completing a pass and having one dropped. He also made a couple of tackles (pulled flags out). He ended up with a scratched neck and a black and blue mark on his arm. He was kind of proud of the bruises on his arm.

In terms of arriving late. His game was moved from 10 am to 9 am, but only the kids were told that. Zachary told us he had to be there at 8:20, but we thought he was wrong, and then he thought he was wrong, too. When Debbie and I coached soccer, we always told the parents, we didn't leave it up to the kids to tell parents. That is one thing I have noticed about all ages around here, they tell the kids and the kids have to tell the parents. It's not bad to teach responsibility, but a quick email works wonders. That is what we did, or we called every parent. Two other kids arrived late as well.

All in all it was a good first season of football for Zachary, he is now wanting to play tackle next year, look out world, since he has no fear.
