JD, Derek and Me after the big win. It was 40 degrees and we were all FREEZING in the Tumwater stadium!
Derek and his high school football team won a close game the other night. It was the quarterfinals of the state playoffs. The boys pulled a win in a SQUEAKER game. Back and forth all night long. Great game! He's only a sophomore, so he doesn't play much, but it's fun to ride this season with all the seniors. His time will come next year and the year after. So much fun to enjoy the Friday Night Lights with all the football boys, parents, cheerleaders, band and crazy student section! Next weekend they will play Archbishop Murphy HS in the TACOMA DOME in the semi-finals. The winner goes for the championship the weekend after. This is the farthest any football team has gone from our high school. Great memories for Derek.
NOTE: It should be said that up until this last win, Derek was silently hoping that the team would lose. He's now missed the first few weeks of practice with the wrestling team and won't be eligible for the first meet. He's a little grumpy about it, but if there's a chance for state, he's going to stay quiet!
