I've said it before and I'll say it again.... it's Flag Football Season, Again!
Don't be shocked if you see the latest plays from Oliver for the next month or two, approximately the exact length of the Dragons season.
We are SO proud of him and we LOVE to watch him play.
This guy is on fire and we love to see him fuel his desire to strive for greatness while having an absolute blast. Don't worry, there is no parent pressure here. This guy just loves the game and the thrill of playing to win. We just cheer loud and proud from the sidelines. If he ever switches to golf, we'll master our gallery clap but in the meantime, I'm wondering if a mega phone is over the top??
Kellan is working on his mad skills too. Next year, you may see this guy with flags around his waist.
When it's time for the Dragon's to take the field, Kellan takes to the iPhone.
When the suite isn't available, he shields the screen with a spare Coach's shirt.
The Dragon's are ready as they meet the opponents center field.
Not all attempts are complete flag pulls.
Not all flag pulls exactly land on the flags.
I guess a problem with a zoom lens is sometimes you capture the accidental shirt grab.
You can't catch them all.
When you don't, your team mates are there to grab the flags as they try to run by and your buddies bring up the rear to pick you up. That's why it's a team sport.
There is no lack of focus when Oliver is on the field.
Try to crack a joke when he comes off the field and you're lucky if you get a sideways glance.
There aren't many flags getting by Oliver this season and when one or two get by, he fine tunes his focus and snatches the next several.
The Primrose Line Up:
Colby, Chase, Owen and Oliver
Oliver going for the Goal.
(Quick double check over the shoulder)
Just like that, it was half time.
He's still got his game face on.
After a quick half time, he was back in flag pulling action.
The Defense is lined up and focused.
Oliver and Owen are a tough pair.
Do you really want to mess with THIS guy?
Oliver and the Dragons had another GREAT game!!
As a disclaimer, the posts are 90% focused on Oliver, but we talk at great lengths about how this is a team sport. We are SO proud of Oliver and we are SUPER proud of the Dragons. Weekly, they show up, listen to their coaches, play hard and focus on giving each and every play and game their best effort. It shows on and off the field as this team has created quite a camaraderie. We are very excited that all of Oliver's grandparents get to see the Dragons play this season and we can't wait to show them why we spend every Sunday afternoon with this great group of kids and parents. I wonder if they have a spare mega phone lying around?
