Spencer's first day of practice

Spencer had his first day of practice today (no pads) and it was a great day for it. Cool and overcast. Spencer (#26) is seen here on defense holding one of the "dummies." Practice lasted for over two and a half hours with the last 15 minutes in running drills. Spencer was pretty sore when it was over, but he did great! Spencer is a lineman and I knew that he would be. He is a solid kid with a size 11 shoe. He is in pretty good shape for a bigger kid. I was impressed with his hustle out there today. I only watched about the last 30 minutes or so and I was pretty proud of him. His coaches were very good and motivated the kids well. It will be a good season for the Jaguars this year I think. On a related note: Jordan was able to get his physical today so he will be playing football for Olathe South starting tomorrow. He is pretty excited to play and will more than likely be a receiver or defensive back. That's my guess anyway. He is in great shape and can run! It will be a fun season for us. Maybe we can get Diana more into football now. Fingers crossed. (photos: Spencer modeling his helmet, listening to the coach, Spencer on defense in gray shorts)

  1. Let us know how the football games go. You know I'm a fan. Can't wait for the big BYU/Oklahoma game! Looks like everyone got off to a good start.
