Boys of Fall

I post so much about all the girls in our family, I thought I would do an all boy post.

My love of football started back in high school. But then it was more of a social event.
When Mr. SS and I started dating in college, he was a running back and defensive back and the back-up quarterback. I decided back then to learn  the game.
I watched him play every game in Jr. College and later State College.
Then all three sons played from age 8  through High School and the youngest played in college.

Tonight, we got to go to a 3 way scrimmage that just happened to include the High School team my son, Brandon coaches and the High School my Grandson, Kyle plays for. Brandon is Kyle's uncle, not his dad.
His dad is my oldest son.

This is Brandon in left center with the gray shirt and black pants. He coaches for West High School in Bakersfield. (sorry, you will have to click on it to enlarge. Yep, there he is)
Kyle, who playes center and tackle is # 72 for Tehachapi High School.
The sun was going down and I just had to try to capture the cloudy sky too.
It was so hot and muggy, I couldn't breathe...or maybe it was my heart swelling with pride...
for my "Boys of Fall"



God is Good!!
Life is Good!!

Hi, Beverly...still haven't made it to SP when you're there. Just wanted to say my three are graduates of West High. I didn't know you had a coach in the family. Great football history you have. Hope to see you soon.
Warmest wishes.
