This year (just like the last two years, because when you find something that works you keep it!) our quarterback is Jeanne Knepper and she is a freaking BEAST with the ball! I'm telling you, she knows what she's doing and it shows! Go Jeanne! She's getting the team nice and trained up for some intramural plays offs this year (hopefully)!
The girls who played flag football this week did such a good job! The game was really exciting and back and forth the whole time. We played against a team who had a fully stacked offensive and defensive line and managed to hold our own against them with all eight people that we have who played. Go Iota! We ended up pulling through in the end with the lead and winning the game.
Wahoo! Go Team!
"OMGOSH first flag football post and it is so great! Hahaha :)
Just wanted to give a shoutout to the whole team for being so incredibly AMAZING!! I may be quarterback, but the team would be nothing without the amazing line that defends me and the super awesome receivers that catch the game winning touchdowns!
Everyone has been so excited for flag football this season and that brings me so much joy. It is so much fun to get to work together with my sisters in a much different capacity than usual. This game takes concentration, strength (both physical and mental), and teamwork. Our team shines in all of these areas!! No matter what is happening in the game, we are all there pushing each other to keep playing hard and, most importantly, to keep our heads held high! We strive to make every game a positive experience in which we come together as sisters and as a team and also hopefully get a win!
This past game was so intense! We played a team that had some great running plays (ones we hadn't practiced defending), so our team had to adjust and do our best to stop them from gaining yards. Brenna and Christina dominated on the defensive line and sacked the quarterback numerous times causing them to lose yards. :) If the other team happened to get past the line we had Jenny, Sara, Becky, and all the other girls ready to pull flags! I'm pretty sure EVERYONE on our team dove (or slipped?) in the grass trying to pull flags. Brenna had some nice battle-wounds (including a HUGE bruise on her knee) and I'm sure a lot of others did, too!! Leanna always helps keep me positive in the game, especially when she asks me, "are we allowed to make noise?" and then proceeds to scream very loudly to distract the other team! Jenny and Lynn protected me so well on offense and we even got to pull our classic "freight train" move with Lynn as center! (YES, we DO have real plays!! "Secret Treasure", "Chick-a-chick-aw", "double duty", "blooper", "Jeabre" just to name a few!) I had Sara, Becky, and Brenna running all over the place on offense trying to get some cool passes and we all totally rocked the epic pass - epic catch scene :)
Pretty much I love flag football and I love my sisters. I just wanted to add some more details about this killer game from last week onto the post so all could share in the experience :). We play again tomorrow and I'm sure it will be even better than last time!
Sic'em TBS flag football!
Thanks for reading everybody!
