This is the second year that Zach has played pee wee football. Last year he played the safety position -- the last line of defense for the team. :D
This year he is playing wide receiver . . . he's so excited about it. He loves to catch the ball so this is a perfect position for him . . . but I'm not as excited about it because the boys that catch the ball are usually the boys that get tackled! Ha!
The early afternoon of the big game . . . the Pee Wee cheerleaders had a fantastic pep rally for the boys.
The boys were soooo excited about the pep rally. I took some pictures and you can really tell how fired up the players were about the upcoming game. Sweet Zach is in the middle of the bunch.
The cheerleaders went all out for the pep rally. They did some cute cheers and showed a lot of spirit. They even had a skit that involved the players. . . . it involved two of the players racing on stick horses . . . The player in front is Zach and the one in back is Neal . . .
Zach won the race and received a present from the cheerleaders.
There was more cheering . . .
The cheerleaders handed out candy (M&Ms) encouragements to each of the players and ended the pep rally with everyone fired up!
The boys won the Spirit stick --- To celebrate they got into a huddle and made a LOT of noise!
If Spirit could win the game . . . these boys were ready to win!
Alex didn't want to play football this year . . . so he acted as the team's water boy.
At the ballgame . . . versus Kemper . . .
During the game . . . Zach is #12 . . . the one walking in front . . .
Zach in action . . . The player to the left . . . #12 . . .
Unfortunately, the pee wee Vikings lost to Kemper . . .
The coaches giving the boys post-game encouragement . . .
They may have lost this game . . . but the players still acted and played like the true Vikings they are ! Good game boys!
Next game . . . September 20th . . . at Central . . . Pee Wee Homecoming! Hope to see you there! Consider this your invitation from . . .
the Ferrell boys and me!
