First Football Practice

Vin had his first football practice tonight. Team jerseys won't be available until games start, and so he wore a Browns' jersey that has been in the family for about as long as I have. He looked good.

Push-ups and sit-ups were a challenge. I think it was the first time in his life that he had done them. He did 14 of each in 90 second sets. That's probably more than I could do.

In the first hitting drill, he got bowled over. And then he figured out what it was all about. This time, he held the much bigger kid up and didn't give any ground. Notice his good hand position, inside on the body. That's good technique.

In the third drill, the other player moved past him, and then Vin took him to the ground. Nice tackle, big man.

And of course, he had his own cheerleading team.
