Count the headlights out on the highway
Well, my first football season has come and gone. The Varsity team ends 4-6, effectively doubling their record from last year. An interesting stat is that we out numbered our opponents in first downs in all but one game. Our main running back ran for 323 yards in the last game, putting him not only at 1188 rushing yards on the year, but also almost 100 yards longer than the school record–which has been in place since 1992. We had two or three 2nd team All-league titles handed out, and a bunch of honorable mentions.
The JV team had a good year with a 7-2 record. For the freshman team it was a rebuilding year (seeing as there was no freshman team last year.) They went 2-5, but in their defense, 4 of those schools were 4A teams, and 2 of the teams even played some juniors against us.
In other news: I spent the weekend up in the north country of Oregon. Hung out with the fellas, doing a little Old Chicago followed by some NCAA Football 2006. Created a new team: Salt Lake State Shakers, who played in Morton Stadium. For the last half of the evening we all endured our horrible jokes of, “the defense looks shaken,” and, of course, the inevitable jokes about the Shaker religion and their furniture.
Anyways, since this week is civil war week (Oregon Ducks vs. Oregon State Beavers–not Union vs. Confederacy) here is a little graphic I made for my dad in celebration of the eventual trouncing of the Beavs:
