Fan and Parent Night

I knew it was Fan and Parent Night the minute I woke up Friday Morning because at 8am
Jace and Judson were already asking to put their black eyes on. I forced them to wait until 2pm, but that was as long as I could hold them off. After they were dresses- fully I might add- shoulder pads and mouthpieces included- Judson asked me to hit his shoulder. I had no earthly idea what the heck he was talking about- but I hit his shoulder and as I did it- he yells, "YEAH! That's what I'm talking about Baby"
I asked him where he heard that- he say's "from those Raiders players"

Gotta Love it!!!:)

Friday was Fan and Parent Night- aka- the first practice in the full football gear, shoulder pads and all, basically a glorified practice starting at dark under the lights where mom's, dad's, brothers, sisters can all come watch and the kids can all hang out on the sidelines or end zones. Not just coaches kids- any and all kids- Pop Warner players- whomever. Its a pretty big deal.
I think its safe to say that the coaching staff is very kid friendly:)

I think its important that the younger kids get to interact with the HS players and see that its a big deal to be a High School Football Player. When I was little, after the HS football games, our district allowed the fans to come onto the field after the games and the kids got the players autographs. I can't believe I remember that because I had to have only been 3 or 4, but it made an impact apparently because I remember being on the field and getting a Coyote Football player to sign something of mine. I am sure it was someone my Grandpa had previously coached.
I hope that the younger kids that were there, had a fun experience. Next year, I hope to really build this up. This was our 3rd year, but with a million other things going on, we lost track of this years Fan and Parent Night- not that anyone noticed- but I knew!!:) ha


As sad as this may be, I didn't get to watch too much of the practice until the end. I was socializing. Sorry, i don't do much socializing during games- I am pretty focused and in fact, I barely will talk to my kids. I remember at the Rockdale game last year that I was so flustered and my kids were starving, I looked up and the next thing I knew, here comes Brandon Pelt, carrying Judson, with Jace walking right beside them and they had BBQ sandwiches and drinks... I didn't even realize they had left. BAD MOM- but dang good coaches wife:) ha
Anyhow, so I didn't watch much of practice. I have a hard time following- so I don't. BUT I did get some video. Josh was pleased overall. We need work, but that's to be expected:)

AND after that amazing Touchdown run by my child and that awesome block that Judson made allowing Jace to score- they earned their stripes and decals for their helmets. They were pretty pumped as I am the Raider Players are just as excited. NOW we officially LOOK like a Varsity team

Here are some video's of the practice. Unfortunately I am limited to what I can put on here. Go to the right of this blog and view where people are viewing from. I can't put TOO much video on here. I wouldn't want to be the coaches wife to give away vital information to the enemy! ha

AND after ALL of that- here is the After Practice Speech. AGAIN you have to adjust your volume to hear it. If you don't listen to any of it- make sure to fast forward to at least Coach Harrison's higher level listening speech. Its worth it.
