He looks like hes got the moves of a Reggie Bush!
assume that's your kid? Looks like a good runner!
Thanks for those nice comments guys... from a proud dad.
Actually, this year was his first in full contact and it took him awhile to understand that you didn't stop when someone hit you... and a couple more weeks for him to learn how to hit and to start to like to hit.
He has very good speed and pretty good moves for his age, but still needs to develop how to make that one (or two) moves, make your cut and hit that top gear style of running. Also, he is solid, but needs to develop more strength in order to break more tackles. Next year will be the year for him to work hard in order to set the tone for high school and beyond. One thing is for sure... he LOVES the sport and would play every day if he could.
ll a little spooked over that #99. I had a dream he kicked my ass last night...
There was a #99 who played on a team against my son's team this year. He was 6'2" and weighed over 200 lbs. With my son (at 75 wet pounds) possibly being hit by this kid I was worried... but, as long as you didn't run directly at the big kid, he was a non-factor. BTW, that kid's dad was 6'5" and weighed almost 300lbs.
