Last week our baby girl and her fellow seniors along with the sophomore girls took on the Freshman and Junior girls at the annual Powder Puff game. The game itself brought back a flood of memories from childhood when Hannah played flag football with they boys. Back then, she was the only girl playing flag football and we were pretty proud of that fact.
See our little blondie? We may or may not have paid her by the flags that she captured....just saying. She was a good player and not intimidated in the least after a little incentive. Ha!
Ok, I'm back from a little walk down memory lane and back to the recent Powder Puff Game. The girls got together with the some of the Varsity Football boys as their coaches and practiced the entire week before the big game. Finally, it was game time! These Senior Girls have not lost a game that they played in throughout their high school career and they won last Thursday night too. Way to go Hannah and fellow senior girls!!!
Hannah had an awesome game. She got a fumble recovery and sacked the quarterback. She was stellar on defense....yes, I am totally biased.
The conversations we overheard on the sidelines from the coaches were hilarious! One of the boys kept hollering, "Can you at least try not to run like a girl? Please??"
Another one hollered, "What the heck are you doing? That is not what we practiced!!! And after they ran it in for a touch down he hollered, "Way to go!" Ha!
But one of my favorite memories was watching the girls, after they scored a touch down, stop and take a group selfie. I never see that on Friday Nights with the football boys, but I loved it. So much fun!
