When I was 10 I was the waterboy for the mighty(PAL)Redskins. It was important for me to get water to the player during timeouts and cheer the team...so 23yrs later I dust off the bottles and revisie my role as a waterboy. I was videotaping the games but I was on the opposite side of the field and didn't fell like I was part of the action. So for the last 3 games I was probably the oldest waterboy in Pee-Wee football history. It was fun to do an it got my mind off of things that were stressing me out ( like my job and some people I knew) An it was fun seeing these kids who could barely get the ball snapped (let alone run a play) come within One play of going to the championship. I just glad I was able to be apart of that. An I like to think my Water had a hand in our success. LoL
I was lucky enough to help out with my friends pee-wee football team. I hung around enough to earn some jobs. Hydration Leader (water boy)Tech-form Instrutor (tackling dum-ee) and Confidence builder team leader (cheerleader). One day in practice we decided to split the team in half, Me an Coach Lang decided to play all time QB. Once Keith got tired I was inserted to run the offience. So nothing like getting in the huddle and having eight T.O.'s saying they want the ball. Some how I got alot of guys the ball doing different things. Like pitches and hand-offs to different guys. But the 2 plays that will stay with me are these two:
Play one: were at the 10yard line about to score. I call a pass play 10 yard out. My main concern is a kid name Isreal. He plays hard and hits even harder. An seeing the only protection I have is plastic kid helmet that ISN'T subpose to use in contact sport. So the ball is snapped an I roll-out to my left. I can't find 1st kid. Find the 2nd kid I throw the ball, but once its thrown I get drilled in the back with a helmet ( its Isreal) I see that my receiver (rico) caught it and scored. I then try to not show that im out of breath and hurting. But yet I stay in cause I know I have health insurence. Moving on.
2nd Play: Pratice is about over an its 4th down an 10. An my receivers are dropping the ball. Agggh! So I draw up a complcated play thats not going to work but who cares lets run it. I got three kids going out. 1st thing 1st find Isreal. He's on my left side pointing and talking smack. (A 13 yr old telling me Im going down, great) So I know not to go left or my ribs are going to be broke. I tell WB playing my RB to watch an BLOCK Isreal. I snap the ball an I look to my left,I was tring to throw it to this tall kid (covered by the other tall kid) I immediately roll to my right. At the corner of my eye I see WB blocking Isreal time is ticking! I told the other two to go deep. While running I find one...covered. I think I see the other receiver. Stop. An Throw it (maybe 30-40yds)It leaves my hands,I get drilled in the back AGAIN! But I keep my eyes on the ball to see my 3rd receiever catch it. Stiff arms a defender and runs in for the score! At the same time I jump up an run the 70 yards sceaming with my hands in the air to Chest Bump him.You swear I just beat the Dallas Cowboys for the Championship on that toss. lol. (I bumped him to hard cause he fell down O'well) It was fun to reliving backyard football dreams I just don't remember waking up with my back in so much pain.
