Today was the first day of the 2011 football season. Coaches met at 5:30.
Players at 6:00…some were early and suited up by 5:45. It was still dark.
At 6:20, the temperature was 80 degrees, that when practice officially began.
Enthusiasm was in the air as 150 JV/Varsity players divided into their
respective groups. Scattered all over the practice field everyone was moving.
Drills were crisp. Everyone seemed excited. Hopeful. Definitely worth
getting up for! I’m so glad I went.

I don’t much about football but I know a lot about relationships and that’s
what the game of football is all about. It’s also about discipline,
hard work, sacrifice and investment.

That’s why I’m a fan of the game.
The combination of all of the above, properly applied, will transform
a life forever.

I love football.
