My First Middle School Football Game


Our team left West Ridge Middle School to get to House Park (the field we were going to play on) to get there early in order to stretch to be nice and loose for the game. We took our time stretching then practiced running offensive plays until game time. Bzzzz the buzzer rang for the start of the game. We were plenty ready to face our opponents O’ Henry Middle School. Our team captains won the toss and chose to receive the ball. Luke caught the ball and ran it for about thirty yards, which was a great way to start off the game. The very next play it was a hand off to max and he ran it all the way for a touchdown. That’s when our team realized it was going to be a blow out. The whole game we just kept running the ball and they could not stop us. Our defense was playing very well, I was playing left linebacker and got about nine tackles and a couple of those tackles were in the back field. We ended up scoring several more times one off of a pick six, and one off a punt return and one more off of a run by Luke. The final score was 32 to 0 and I thought that was a great way to start off the year. What about you?
