A Good Start

Friday night my son's football team, Mason County High School (Maysville, KY) began their season with a roar. They faced a worthy opponent ranked in the top 10 of 2A schools statewide while Mason Co. is ranked in the top 10 of 3A schools. Most predictions were a toss-up. By half time my son's team held a commanding lead of 41-7. The final score ended up at 48-21 as the opponents scored two touchdowns in the final 1:13 against the back-ups.

My son played every bit as well as I had hoped, primarily at left tackle on offense. At 6' 3" and 260 pounds, he's the biggest guy on the team, agile and as fast as most of the linebackers. He only played 4 downs on defense and had 2-3 tackles and caused a fumble which his team recovered.

Here's a video I took of him causing the fumble.

Awww. Looks like the opposing O line attempted to tickle him as he crashed straight through.

Seriously though, I was looking for a little bit more time between the snap and the fumble. I had to watch this three times to make sure I saw it right.

That kid has some dang speed for his size.
He has a knack for shooting the gap. Don't know how he does it but he does it a lot.
