Thursday was Such an exciting day for me. Vinny has always talked about wanting to play football. Long ago he tried rec ball but it just wasn't the right time.
I know I've talked about how proud I was that he made his middle school team but it all became real Thursday when he played his first scrimmage game. At first when I got there and saw the size of the boys on the four other teams I got so nervous. Vinny may be tall but these other boys looked like they belonged in high school already and I know most of them out weighted him by at least 30 or more pounds. Needless to say I said my little prayer that he would make it out with little to no injuries.

Not going to jump the gun but Friday when I
went to pick him up from practice I overheard
the couch tell him that he is going to let him
tryout to be the kicker for special teams Tuesday
to go along with his other position. Keeping my
fingers crossed. First real game is next week!!!
GO BULLDOGS!!! and go Vinny!!
