Over the last three years, Jack has played flag football in the fall in the Consumes Community Services District league. A picture of Jack from last season actually shows up on the CSD web page! This year he is going play in the Parochial Athletic League (PAL) on a team from his school.
The rules are slightly different. The CSD league had 5 players on the field at time and did not allow blocking. The PAL league has 9 players on the field and does allow limited blocking. The SEAs PAL team includes more than 20 sixth, seventh and eighth graders from the school.
Getting ready for the first game of the season, the team scrimmaged against St. Mary's. Jack caught one pass on offense and had an interception on defense. With a lot more kids on the field and the team, I am interested to see how Jack does in the games. I think that it is going to be a lot harder to stand out. The first game is Friday night against St. Ignatius.
