The Football Finale!

(photos by ASA Photographic…of course)

So Sunday brought the end of another Pop Warner football season.

Both Matthew and Steven had thier last games of the 2009 season. As we did last year Gail and I photographed all the kids in action at almost all the games. We posted the images online and for $2.50/ea, parents could download and own whatever photo they wanted. All the proceeds are going toward the end of the year festivities for their teams. We shot and edited through about 9000 frames of their games this year and posted around 2000-2500 of them.

We have a great time capturing the all the kids in action and the parents are always very appreciative.

I helped coach Stevens team this year as I had the last 2 for Matthew. I have to say after spending two years helping to coach the kids on Matthew's team, I missed them this year. However, all the new faces on Steven's team kept me more than busy! "Stay in line!", "Keep your hands to yourself!" "Stop ripping up the grass!"

Amazing to think that’s where they all were mentally not two years ago. They have come a long way!

As CRAZY as the schedule always gets, we love that this sport helps brings us all together with the kids and freinds at the field. They boys stay in shape, get stronger and the team ethics our doing a great job carving out our little men.

And now....well... now we get back about 20 hours a week...YIPEE!

We will miss our family at the field though.

Matthew’s team,the Lil’ Indians, went UNDEFEATED! Eight wins and zero losses. I am not sure how many times that has happened before in his league, but I would bet they had the best record in all Billerica Pop Warner…quite possibly the state!

Steven’s first years with Pop Warner was great! Definetly getting my Rookie of the Year vote.

He had at least several QB sacs to his credit and a fumble recovery/return. Not bad for our little defensive lineman.
