Dateline: November 7, 2009
Location: Canyon High School Football Field
Event: Junior Warrior football game v. Junior Canyon Green
There is a rule in our Pop Warner football league which states that if a team goes up by 25 or more points, then the opposing team may select 6 players to sit out from play. Bryce’s team has been fairly successful this season and therefore this rule has been invoked several times against us. Typically, the other team will pull out the quarterback, receivers and running backs. You know, the guys who get all the big time plays. Smart teams pull out the center and parts of the Offensive Line. It’s always a show of respect for those players who are pulled out.
On November 7th, Bryce not only started, he got pulled under the mercy rule. It was awesome.
I think a football player may have been born on this day.
