Peewee Football Photos

I wrote a little about the first few games of the boys’ football seasons (here and here) but not the second half of the season.  I’ll get around to that sometime soon, but here is Elliot’s photo:


I found the photos from when I played (3rd and 5th grade).  There’s a photo from 4th grade too, but I quit before the season started (because I wanted to play with my buddy after school instead of going to football practice and because the coaches were stressing me out by threatening to make us run extra laps around the field if we ran the first one too slowly).  The first year I was 3rd string offensive line.  I remember one game they put me in on defensive line, and I was shooting the gap into the backfield and tackling the quarterback almost every play…but unfortunately it was a fraction of a second after he would hand the ball off.  By the second year I played, I was one of the bigger players on the team.  Because I had an August birthday (shortly after the cut-off), most of the kids on the team were at least a grade below me.  That year the coaches wanted to play me at tight end (hence my # 40 jersey), but after the first few practices moved me to offensive tackle to replace someone who wasn’t getting the job done.  I also played defensive end and had a couple tackles for safeties that were the highlight of my year.  I didn’t play organized football again after that, sticking with basketball instead.  Here are my photos:

Midland County Fair 2010

From the better late than never department, here’s a post that I just realized I never published…from when we made our annual trip to the Midland County fair last August.  Here is video of Elliot on the “Super Shot”:

Steelers 27 Panthers 3

A couple days before Christmas we made the third annual Moore family pilgrimage to Heinz Field for a Steelers game (links to the 1st and 2nd trips).  The Steelers stomped the Panthers...which was enjoyable enough but not nearly as exciting as last year's win against the Vikings.  It was a night game and cold (in the 20s?) and we arrived several hours we were getting pretty cold towards the end.  We left a little early in the 4th quarter to get warm and vowing plan trips earlier in the fall next time.  The next day we hit the road for Christmas in N.C.  Here are some photos from the game:
