Rod’s first football game (sixth grade)

Saturday, August 23rd, 2008

Rod had his first Kell Longhorn game.  It was a lot of fun, but we did lose 42-12.  Rod played very well, but seemed shocked by the level of pain that is dished out in a football game.  In the third play of the game he beat the offensive lineman and was on the verge of sacking the quarterback when two of his fellow defensive linemen broke through and side swiped him in the leg.  Apparently a helmet hit his shin and it hurt pretty bad.

Rod was pretty tentative after that.
