2010 PAL Flag Football SEAs versus St. Ignatius

The SEAs Eagles played their first game of the 2010 PAL Flag Football season against St. Ignatius at Jesuit High School. They will be playing a seven game season followed by two weekends of play-offs.

On offense, Jack played wide receiver. Jack is split out to the left in the picture. St. Ignatius had two giant defense linemen that the SEAs' linemen struggled to keep out of the backfield. Neither of the giant St. Ignatuis linemen are in the picture! Although I did not count, I would guess that they sacked the quarterback eight times and were in the quarterback's face every time he dropped back to throw. There were three passes thrown to Jack, but he did not get a reception.

On defense, Jack played linebacker. He had one interception.

St. Ignatius won the game by the score of 20 to 0.

I was surprised how much Jack ended up playing. He was probably on the field for all but five or six plays. With nine players on the field at time, this is a much different game than the CSD flag football that he has been playing the last three years. With blocking, it is a lot more physical. At this age, the game is getting a lot faster. I think that it is going to take Jack a couple of games to adapt to the speed of the game. It is going to be a good experience for Jack.
