The Boys of Fall

My boys of Fall
Alex #2
Nick #24

This coming week will mark the end of both their seasons....I am SO incredibly proud of them....They have shown great sportsmanship, great effort, and great improvement....They make their mama (and daddy) proud every single time they step on the field....Their love of the game is evident every minute of the game. Great season boys. Good Luck in the playoffs!

Nick our "flag pulling" machine!


Alex...QB and Linebacker
Runs harder and with more heart than any kid I have ever seen.

Here is a video by Kenny Chesney for his song "The Boys of Fall"
Great video and great song....give it a second to get started.

When I feel that chill, smell that fresh cut grass/
I'm back in my helmet, cleats and shoulder pads/
Standing in the huddle listening to the call/
Fans going crazy for the boys of fall/
They didn't let just anybody in that club/
Took every ounce of heart and sweat and blood/
To get to wear those game day jerseys down the hall/
Kings of the school man, we're the boys of fall/

(Chorus:)
Well it's turn and face the Stars and Stripes/
It's fighting back them butterflies/
It's call it in the air, alright yes sir we want the ball/
And it's knocking heads and talking trash/
It's slinging mud and dirt and grass/
It's I got your number, I got your back when your back's against the wall/
You mess with one man you got us all/
The boys of fall/

In little towns like mine that's all they got/
Newspaper clippings fill the coffee shops/
The old men will always think they know it all/
Young girls will dream about the boys of fall/

(Chorus:)
Well it's turn and face the Stars and Stripes/
It's fighting back them butterflies/
It's call it in the air, alright yes sir we want the ball/
And it's knocking heads and talking trash/
It's slinging mud and dirt and grass/
It's I got your number, I got your back when your back's against the wall/
You mess with one man you got us all/

I love having boys when fall hits! We are a big football family! HUGE! I cannot wait until my juju is old enough to play flag football and then regular football
