Jack played in his fourth flag football game of the 2008 season. The Gators played against the Rebels. As the teams were lining up before the game, it was clear that the other team had two of the biggest players that I have seen so far this season. I thought that this might create some problems; my fears were short lived.
After playing quarterback on offense the last two weeks, Jack played running back. On the first play of the game, he took a hand off from quarterback and started for the sideline. Jack faked outside and then cut inside the outside defender. He went the length of the field out running the two bigger players to score the first touchdown. I had not even set down my coffee and my book...
On the first play of third offensive series, the quarterback threw Jack a pass in the left flat. He started up the field. Several times, Jack came to almost a couple stop and changed direction causing the defenders to run into each other. He went the length of the field to score a touchdown.
He also completed one halfback option pass and caught one other pass in the first half. At the end of the first half, the score was 24 to 0.
On defense, Jack intercepted one pass and made a number of great "tackles." He has intercepted five passes in four games and at least one in every game.
The Gators won the game by a score of 24 to 0. Their record for the 2008 flag football season is 4 wins and no losses.
