Lawson’s flag football team from last year decided to move up a level to partial contact starting this season. The boys will wear helmets and pads, and blocking is allowed, although it’s still flag football and they won’t be tackling. We asked Lawson if he was interested in playing, and much to our surprise, he was all in once he heard about getting to wear the pads and helmet.
The season kicks off this Saturday with a mini training camp for the whole leage, held at a really nice HS football stadium in Austin. So Mike took Lawson out to get his helmet and pads so he’d be ready for the big day.
This is what I arrived home to yesterday!
Oh, and that close-up picture is a picture of his sweat. He was very proud of it and insisted I take a photo. See it there, on the left side of his nose? (hee hee)…
