Not just a football team it's a family


     I would just like to take this opportunity to say great job to my high school football team. They made it to the PIAA AAA District 10 finals, unfortunately were not able to win the game. Altho they did not come on top at the end I know that the senior's and the rest of the team left it on the field and everyone was very proud of them. 
     Hello there this is John and you might of not know but before I was inducted to state council I was one of the players. 
     We had just finished summer workouts and we had a week break until two-a-days started. I was inducted within that brake. I remember getting home and calling the head coach about the opportunity that was given to me. I was not sure what his reaction was going to be, what he would say, or if he would try to talk me out of it. I was pleasantly pleased when he said that thinks that my choice was a good one. 
     Now that I was able to tell the coach now what was the team going to say to me on the first day of school. I was plaining on being called a quitter, or lazy, but that wasn't the case. Everyone thought what I was doing is great and I recall on one of my friends saying that I'm "awesome at 4-H".  
     Many players and even their parents missed me on the field saying that it was just not the same. I think that the person that was upset the most was our school Athletic Trainer. And then one game latter on in the season I seen that the team was down a manager or "water girl". I went to our trainer and asked if he wanted help. He said yes in a hart beat. Once I was back on the field I made sure that the team knew I was there hitting their helmets and shoulder pads. The faces on the player seem very happy, at least that's what I thought. Latter during that game when I was standing near our trainer he asked me what I was doing next Friday night and if I wanted to do it again and for the rest of the season. I quickly said yes with a huge smile on my face. Then once again I was part of the team, not as a player as I once was but as a manager or "water girl". (yes they called me water girl, but I didn't mind)
