(Lil Jumbo Joe)
The only person who may be more emotional than Flag Girl about tonight, could be his Biggest Fan: Coach. In four years, Uncle Coach has not missed one of Joe's home games (or several away games). Freshman, JV or Varsity. He has been giddy, re-living the fun and excitement of Friday night Football. We've invited friends and family over for pre-pizza. We have bundled up and walked (quickly!) towards the field. We have sat in sweat during August and shook from chills in October. Coach loves the people, the plays, the sound, the lights, he even loves the smell.
Of the four major seasons, Football Season is hands down, Coach's favorite. It will be a long, looong three years while Coach waits for his son to (hopefully) play.
it has been our honor to watch you play,
To watch you grow...
You have made our family-filled Friday nights.
We'll miss you in the Green and White.
How bout it?? One more TD for the road...?
All our love-
Aunt Me and especially Uncle Coach.
