Football is done! Woo hoo! Carter played his first year of tackle ball and it was a lot of fun and VERY busy! I've told people if it weren't for the fact that we LOVE football it would have been horrible, but we love it so it was a ton of fun. We learned some interesting things about Carter. He is very unsure about tackling. He doesn't mind getting tackled but said he just has a hard time convincing himself to run full bore into someone else! He was a great quarterback. He's smart and sees plays well. He did really well at QB. He is NOT aggressive. While enjoying playing quarterback he never told the coach he wanted to play more because someone else really wanted to be QB, so he just went with the flow. At the end of the season several parents said they wished he would've played QB more often and that seemed to boost his confidence a bit. And last but not least, he is not afraid to try anything. We would just crack up laughing during games. Kicker hurt? Carter will do it. Kick team missing a player? Carter will do it. Someone's not playing their position well? Carter will do it. While other kids were afraid to try the coaches knew if they needed to fill a space Carter would do it. He wasn't always great but other kids were too nervous to even try. The one game he ended up kicking because the kicker was hurt he did awesome! Who knew??
I realized as I did this post I don't have any pictures of him all suited up! Oh well. Here he is with two of his coaches at his banquet and a whole mess of hormones... I mean team mates!
