Jacob Football Highlights

I have a couple of highlight reels to post for Jacob's football so far this weekend. The first one below is a collection of defensive highlights for Jacob, including his first ever ball carry (he's been over the weight limit every prior season so always had to take a knee when recovering the ball). The second one is a game summary from his team's season opener vs. Beaverton put together by another parent.

Both boys are having great seasons. Jacob's team is 2-0 with a home game vs. Hillsboro on Saturday night. Matthew's team is 1-1, having opened his season against a tough Lincoln team that we hope to have a chance to face again in the playoffs. He is playing down in Scappoose on Saturday at noon.

Football is Life

Or at least it seems that way this time of year, though no regrets. My typical day these days: up at 5:30am, carpool downtown at 6:30am, work until about 4pm, then to football practice until 8:30pm. Things will lighten up with school back in - only 3 practices a week. Both boys have their first games tomorrow, schedule:

  • Matthew (the game I'm coaching) plays 10am - noon
  • Head to Canby to film and scout our next opponent, 2-4pm
  • Back home for a quick bite then off to Beaverton to watch Jacob's game under the lights, 7pm-9pm

Then on Sunday I get to help coach a fall baseball game for the boys 4:45pm - 7pm back up in Beaverton. Hopefully will get to do some gaming (of the non-sports type) early Sunday afternoon.

Check back soon for football photos!
