Jack played in his fifth flag football game of the 2008 season. We missed the game last week while we were at the baseball tournament in Manteca with the Gunners.
It was an odd game. There was a strong north wind blowing. The kids had trouble throwing the ball accurately and there were lots of dropped passes.
Jack played offense and defense in the first half. On offense, he started out playing running back. Jack made a circus catch on a ball throw behind him. He also completed two short passes off a half back option. The offense struggled. Towards the end of the half, they shifted Jack to quarterback; he was 0 for 3. Jack was frustrated that he did not get a chance to run with the ball.
He only played defense in the second half. Jack intercepted one pass in the first half and another in the second half. He also had his hands on one other interception, but uncharacteristically dropped it. Jack has intercepted at least one pass in every game he played this year and has seven interceptions in five games.
The Gators ended up losing by the score of 20 to 0. They won the game last week by a score of 25 to 12. Their record for the season is 5 wins and 1 loss.
