Here in the south Friday night football is a big deal. From a cheerleader's perspective it is my favorite sport to cheer for during the school year. At the beginning of every season the “pump up music” even makes the cheerleaders pumped, the smell of freshly cut grass fills the air, and the fathers cooking burgers on the grill never fails to make me say, “Aww it's football season!!!”
Recently we had our opening football tournament where each team plays three other teams in our district. This is to let all the teams get comfortable and to show us all where we stand for the rest of the season. Not to brag, but the Lee Academy Cougars were the only team to win a game. Which made us very proud!
Last week we had our first real football game. We were tied for a while but the opposing team scored two touch downs on us before the game was over. Teammates were encouraging everyone to keep trying and to never give up! It made me proud seeing those boys pick their teammates up. It inspired me to encourage everyone, not just in the south, to never give up when things don't go as planned. Even if you do not win every game in life, do not make excuses, make results! In every situation the worst that could happen would be giving up. Win or lose, there is always someone supporting you!
