Austin had a tough decision to make this year. Varsity vs Junior Varsity. The max weight limit for football is 125lbs and the minimum is 65lbs. Austin weighs in at a whopping 73lbs which was likely to translate into not very much playing time if he decided to play Varsity. His coach told him he would get a lot of playing time if he played on the JV team. He had a few friends that had decided to play JV. So, Austin decided he preferred time on the field to time on the bench.
I'm so glad he made that decision! It has been so much fun to watch him this year! He is the starting running back and plays defense as well. (I can't remember what position he plays! I just know where he stands!)
He scored a touchdown at his first game in the Football Carnival! The Football Carnival kicks off the season. Every school in their area comes and they play a bunch of short games at the big high school stadium. It really gets everybody excited about football!
He has a game every Friday and I look forward to it all week! I love to see how excited he gets when he has a good game or a great play! He is such a cute kid!
