Sure...it's Flag Football. What's your point?
I was shocked when he told our football loving neighbors that he wanted to play. I mean, we're a baseball family. We know that College football is played on Saturday and Pro is played on Sunday, but Shane is still rooting for Troy Aikman's Cowboys. Okay, I'm exaggerating a tad, but you get my point. Still, in an effort to encourage our shy little guy to get out and experience things, we signed him up!
The first practice was a little rough in the beginning. Ty didn't know anyone, so he was a bit shy...and ready to throw in the towel on his football career. I told him he couldn't make any decisions until he COMPLETED his first practice. Sure enough, by 10am on Saturday, he was counting the hours until Game #1 on Monday night.
He's #22 in the program, but #1 in our hearts...playing on the (Ramsey) Cowboys...in every position (that's a rule of the flag football program)...Ty "TyTy" Higby:
(That's Ty getting the hand-off from the QB)
Tonight, when we got there, he didn't even hesitate as he joined the team. I couldn't have been more proud. He did great and had a wonderful attitude. I laughed a lot! My favorite moment was after the game. When the teams needed DIRECTIONS to shake hands. And here I thought all that stuff came naturally...
