Cobra's Scrimmage

Last Thursday the boys, all the boys, had scrimmages. Unfortunately I was not able to be at Ryan's scrimmage, but I was able to capture some great shots of the boys! They are both at new positions this season, so it was a transition for them, but they tried their best, and did great!

Colin is the center, which means he snaps, or gives the ball to the quarterback...this is a HUGE job, but he loves it! It means that he is on the field the entire time that the offense is on the field!
I love this shot...you can feel the passion of the boys waiting for that ball to be snapped!
Colin is the one in the black socks, #60, and he is doing an awesome job blocking...cuz you see a center's job is not only to snap the ball, but to make sure no one gets to the quarterback before the ball gets to another player!
Brendan is all over the field this year...defensive end, left guard and line backer...basically he will play offense and defense which means he will be on the field most of the game! He is all over that!

With most of the team being so new to football, this was the first time hitting for a lot of the players...they did as well as can be expected! The good news is that they can only get better!
Here's to a great season!
Go Cobras!
