Working Towards the Heisman

Wilson has been waiting 5 long years to be 5 years old. Five years old is the magic age to sign up to play football. It has been such a positive experience.

Contrary to the widespread belief that these photos will generate, Wilson rarely runs the ball.

In fact, every time he has run the ball, he has ******shhhhhhhhhhhhh******** dropped it.

Even on this run.

HOWEVER...after every play, the tough, tough running back/linebacker/quarterback/center turns to me with a thumbs up from the middle of the field. And after a successful run, which ends in a trip or a slip and a dropping of the ball, he turns to me with a thumbs up and a "did you see that mommy!?!"

And what makes me the happiest is that he is just as happy and satisfied on the sideline as he is on the field.

We are working towards the Heisman. We've got our intimidating game face down, no doubt.
