Ok, so I should have posted this days ago, but Big G had an awesome first game. I was so proud of him. We lost by only 2 points, but the point is that the whole team played a great game. They played hard, but fairly. I didn’t see one kid (or parent for that matter – we all know some sports parents can get a little crazy!) who showed unsportsmanlike conduct. The game began with prayer, and ended with high fives to the the opposing team.
Big G made a couple of great plays, including some excellent blocks and one superb catch. He was really proud of himself as well, which makes it all the better. He, nor the team, focused as much on winning or losing, as they did on doing their best and just having fun. I am so proud of all of them. Yay for Upward sports. Go Panthers!
