We can’t believe it’s already time! Time to get on that field and put to use what we have worked on all summer. Time to suit up and start the 2013 ACA football season!
It was just as hot as coach Keith had told us it would be! We were a little winded in that first quarter, be we took what our coach had put in to us all summer and we endured and pushed forward. TOUCHDOWN EAGLES!
We were the first to scored in the game. Man did it feel good to see the referee’s arms go up! We knew right then we were on the road to success! After that first touchdown, what we thought was going to be a tiring game, became a fun game. We all realized we were in much better shape that the other team. When they were gasping for air and we were at the line ready for the next play to begin.
As the game went on it got easier and easier for us. It was definitely worth busting our butts all summer. We ended the game defeating Byne Christian School 44-0. An Eagles win!
Looking at it now we thank Coach Keith for pushing us as hard as he did and preparing us for this season. We also thank God for the strength and the ability to play the game of football.
We will play host to Faith Christian this Friday, August 16 at Eagle Field starting at 7:30 p.m.
