Rylan's FIRST Flag Football Game!

Rylan is finally part of a team!  We decided after several seasons of sitting on the sidelines it was time for Rylan to finally play something. Rylan birthday usually falls right after the age cut off for most organized sports, therefore up until now he has not been eligible to play anything.

Sunday was Rylan's first flag football game as a Carolina Panther. We signed up for the NFL Flag Fanatics, so all of the teams are actual NFL teams.  I had heard great things about this league in the past.  However, I think everyone failed to mention how hard core this league is!  The referees are actually calling penalties, throwing flags. playing on an actual football field and the kicker, parents are not allowed anywhere near the field we have to sit in the stands.  Are you kidding me they are 4 & 5 years old!  But little Rylan was so excited about his game, that I just let everything slide.

 As you can see, he is the littlest on the team!  But again just look at that smile, he was having the time of his life.

In this age group, the coach is the quarterback, and yes, that would be the big guy passing Rylan the ball.

As I said this league is hard core!  Rylan was passed the ball and he ran for a touchdown and only missed it by a couple of inches!

So close!  Rylan ran his little heart out the entire game.

After the game he ran over to see us and he was just so proud of himself!

I guess that is all that really matters, he is out there having fun and playing.  I suppose I can overlook the intensiveness this once.
