it’s starting, the fields are concrete hard, the weather hot and muggy, the sweat’s flowing… it must be the fall and the start of FOOTBALL SEASON! i love this time. water has never tasted so good out of a hose, goofy tanlines from the pants/pads, the burning desire to make something of yourself and your team.
of course, the addition of a 7on7 touch team isn’t as time consuming as highschool, college, or semi-pro team – but i thought i’d mention it, cuz it’s fun and another way to get into the game. i’ve put together a lil something something of a team for a recreational league out of bloomington, MN. i played in the league last fall (along with two other 7on7 touch teams) – it’s fun and i think i’ve become a better football player as a result of it: i used to be a bowling ball style runner, hitting everyone and didn’t have any finesse moves – you can’t hit people in 7on7 touch, so i was forced to work on a juke move or two. i think that has really helped my career and made me a better runningback in the process.
fun times in the making
