FOOTBALLER PRESTON


STILL CATCHING UP

PRESTON IS PLAYING TACKLE FOOTBALL!
WHILE I DON'T AGREE WITH 8 YEAR OLD 3RD GRADERS
WEARING PADS AND HELMETS, 
I DO SUPPORT PRESTON IN WHAT HE LIKES TO PLAY.

I ALSO LIKE THAT THERE IS A COACH ON THE FIELD
DURING THE GAME FOR EACH TEAM . . . TO TEACH,
AND PREVENT INJURIES.

ALSO, CERTAIN PLAYERS ARE THE "X-MEN."
THEY WEIGH A LOT MORE, AND THEY CANNOT
TACKLE ANY PLAYER THAT DOESN'T HAVE AN "X".
PRESTON DOESN'T.
OBVIOUSLY.
BUT, COLE DOES IN HIS LEAGUE.

ON SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, BEFORE THE FIRST
HOME BYU GAME, I WENT TO PRESTON'S GAME
AT FRONTIER MIDDLE SCHOOL.
THIS SCHOOL IS ON THE OUTSKIRTS OF EAGLE MOUNTAIN.
HIS "WESTLAKE" TEAM PLAYED A TEAM FROM LONE PEAK.
THEY BEAT LONE PEAK!
(WHICH IS HARD TO DO...EVEN AT THAT AGE!)


 THIS WAS SOOOO CUTE.  THEY HAD A BANNER FOR THE BOYS
TO RUN THROUGH TO START THE SECOND HALF.


THE COACH IS ON THE FIELD, AND IN THE HUDDLE
DURING THE GAME.

REID DIDN'T PLAY FOOTBALL UNTIL 8TH GRADE.
THEY HAD NO ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TEAMS.
I WILL NEVER FORGET THE CHEERLEADERS.
THEY WORE JEANS AND A YELLOW SWEATSHIRT WITH A SMILEY FACE ON IT.
THEY DID A CHEER EVERY GAME INTRODUCING THEMSELVES:
BECKY (BOREN)
BRENDA (KITCHEN)
GAYA CARLTON)
SUZANNE (PIERCE)
KERRIE (DREW)
SHERRIE (JENSEN)
THEY PLAYED BETWEEN THE ARMORY AND THE (THEN) SWIMMING POOL.
HAHAHAHA!  THAT MEMORY JUST POPPED INTO MY HEAD!

THE CHEERLEADERS FOR PRESTON'S TEAM HAD REAL CHEERLEADING OUTFITS,
AND I'M SURE THEY WERE WAAAAAY MORE EXPENSIVE
THAN THE JEANS AND SWEATSHIRT!

YUP.  SCHOOL IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE . . . FOR NOW.


MY LITTLE BUDDY AND I.
