Hard to imagine how a football season could turn out any better for our family (other than the Cowboys missing the playoffs this year). Highlights:
- Jacob's high school team won the Oregon 5A state championship with an overtime field goal. You can watch a low-fidelity capture of the game over at OSAA TV.
- Matthew's youth team won their championship (this is the team I help coach). This was our fourth straight visit to the championship game and our first time bringing home the trophy. Matthew capped off a great season by leading his team in tackles and scoring two touchdowns in the game. Additionally, the other Sherwood 8th grade team also won their championship, meaning 2 of the 4 8th grade champions in the Tualatin Valley were Sherwood. To the best of our knowledge this has never happened before.
I just shipped the highlight video for Matthew's team - be warned that it is 30 minutes long. Matthew is #56.
Additionally, you can watch the entire championship game:
