The 2009 Keller, Texas Select youth football team that I was assisting for as Offensive Line Coach this season, lost its first playoff game a couple weeks back. I’ve been stewing about the loss and finally had the urge to talk about football today, because the team I coached in Arvada (Denver CO) won its playoff game today which puts them in the Jefferson County Youth Football Carnation Bowl / Super Bowl. I am very proud of both teams, but Go Arvada Pirates and congrats to Coach Cox and all the Pirate Coaches, families and players. I miss you.
My oldest son starts playing Jr High ball next year, which will be very exciting, but sad for me. I have coached Berndt “Bear” since he started playing flag football at 5 years old. It was unfortunate for Bear that he did not make it to a Super Bowl as I did as a youth player. My youngest son, Zane also lost his Keller youth football playoff game this season. Zane’s Arvada team won the Super Bowl last season, so Zane was a little disappointed that his Keller team was not a Super Bowl contender this season. I am considering helping Zane’s Keller Youth Association select sophomore team next season as the offensive coordinator, so that will be fun for Zane and I since I have never coached one of Zane’s youth sports teams.
I’m not ready for football to be over in the Parker house. I am already bored and have too much time on my hands. I guess I will start updating my playbook again. Its a never ending process.
I hope your season did to end early but if it did, there’s always next season.
