Over the past 10 years I have been privileged to watch a great number of football games where my son was a participant. It has been a good run of great games.
Since winning the Division Championship in the 6th grade, my sons teams have lost very few games. I think you can count on one hand the number of losses that Jordan was part of when he was a starter.
As parents of these young guys we have come to support the programs in a variety of ways and for that we are thankful to have that opportunity. Great programs aren't born, they are built.
Our last game against the #3 ranked team in Georgia was a thriller and here is a brief clip to watch of our great running backs get it done. This young man is Mikko Brisker. If you go to YOUTUBE and type in his name you will see that he holds national records for his age class in powerlifting. He will literally freight train you on a head on collision. Jordan says that it "just hurts" to tackle Mikko in practice.
It is a treat to watch Mikko and his teammates on Friday nights under the lights.
If Jordan doesn't go on to play at the college level it will all be over. I'll have more time on my hands for sure but dang, I'll miss the excitement of high school ball games.
