Em was named offensive player of the week by his coaches at Bishop McGuiness. This mama thinks that is a pretty big deal, especially since he is on the line. The linemen are the worker bees, getting the job done so the quarterbacks can make the pass and the receivers can score the touchdown. They usually don't get their names called over the PA and the stands don't rise and cheer like crazy when they do a good job because they allow their teammates to finish the job- and score. I once asked Em if he would like to play a different position with a little more "glitz" (there I got in a glitter derivative) but he said "No, I've always played center." He has been center for a long time, I think 2nd grade. He is my quiet leader and this mom is proud of him and his teammates.
The Fighting Irish are District Champs and will begin playoffs next week.
Aren't these pictures great! We have a dad, Kane Hammersly, who has taken pictures at every game since middle school. We are so very blessed to have this talented dad. Someday I will have a lot to scrapbook. Wonder how Kane feels about paper & glitter, what an improvement that would be to my blog photos!
Next post will be all about the glitter- I promise!
Some things NEVER change!
