Spartan Football Camp

1

I just got back from a trip to Michigan to go to football camp at Michigan State.  The crazy thing was we just got back from Marco Island and went to a going away party for a friend. The next morning I had to wake up at 5:30 to get on a plane. On this trip it was only my dad and I. We got ready and we took off. We were going on Delta and they had free wifi and you could have watched movies and on their app. I watched Alexander and His Horrible Terrible No Good Very Bad Day and some of the Maze Runner.

When we arrived we got the rental car and we drove off to go eat at a coney island. It was my first actual coney dog. I liked it and I want to try another one again. After lunch we head over to my dad’s friends house which is a little less than 10 minutes away from the Spartan Stadium.

The first day of camp was long but really cool. There are different NFL teams where you are organized. I was in the Titans which I wasn’t excited about but it didn’t really matter. Each team had a coach and the coaches were players from the Michigan State football team. My coach was Brandon Clemons. He is a defensive tight and he weighs 305lbs.

The first day we stretched and the coaches introduced themselves. I also to took a picture with MSU Football Coach Mark Dantonio and the cotton bowl trophy. The first big activity was the offensive drills. Offensive drills includes QBs, WRs, and offensive line drills. After a break then there were Defensive drills its positions as LB, Defensive line and stuff like that. Then we had lunch and for lunch we had a wrap with cheese and ham, a cookie, chips. Then we went into the indoor practice field and did more drills. We also saw a video for MSU. Then we had dinner and we had chicken tenders. Then we played a razzle dazzle game. Razzle dazzle is like football but it is one hand touched and you can through the ball anywhere even if you are past the line of scrimmage. But the risk is  it still can get intercepted and incomplete. We played 2 games and we tied one and lost one. The scores were 14-14 and 21-14. In total I scored 2 touchdowns and had 4 interceptions. Then we packed up and left.

The second day was shorter but even better. We did the same thing as day one but for lunch was pizza and after lunch we went in the Spartan Stadium. We did a razzle dazzle game in their and we tied 14-14 and I got 2 touchdowns one was a pick six. I also got to go in the press box and watch other kids play razzle dazzle. After everything I got my jersey signed by most of the players that were their. Later that day we went to a tigers game and they lost 5-3 against the Reds.

The next day we went to the Ford tour at motor city and it was cool but I wouldn’t want to go everyday. At 7pm the plane took off and we came back home. When I get older I want to go back and stay at a dorm. So I want to go next year.

The Big Game!

0

This Saturday we had a big game for football. It wasn’t the championship but it was a big game. It was another unseated team. And before we went against this team there were 3 undefeated teams counting us. We were in second place and the first place team has won every game by 40+ points. We were in second. The 1st place team has four firs on it. All the girls were good. One of them was the QB. What she would do was   throw quick passes. When she quick passes they were high up in the air because most of there team were tall. I was worried through the whole week playing against them. Then my coach told us one of the mom’s wanted a news crew to come in and put on the news a team of girls beating the boys at football.

So on Saturday I woke up and ate eggs and I was all ready to go. So when we started the game they had ball first. We made them turn the ball over and we scored a touchdown after. When we went for the 2 they intercepted it and came close to getting the 2 points extra. But luckily we got him later that game I scored two touchdowns. One touchdown I jukes a person and the other one was burning them. We didn’t get extra points. So the score was 18-0 at the end. Just to be clear I play flag football.

I was so happy at the end of the game. We are number one and there is still an unseated team. We are probably going to meet them at the finals. So I hope we do good for the rest of the season.

A long weekend

I had a super long weekend even though it was two days long. At 12:00pm I had a football game. We won 40-8. But next week is a different story as we are going against the other unseated team. They are all tall, fast, able to catch, and throw. We have some real hard games coming up. I scored 1 touchdown off an interception. After the football game I went to Universal with my friend and his family. When went there for his parents for a concert. I don’t recall the name but it wasn’t that interesting for me.[Mom note: It was Olivia Newton John!]

We went on the hulk which was pretty awesome. After we walked around we went on Journey to Atlantis. It is a tour guide thing about what happened to the Ancient Greeks with gods and wars. Sounds boring but it is fun. So he said “since I said my name say yours” so everyone did. But I said mine one second late on purpose. But I didn’t realize this was going to happen. His reaction was ok “Brendan we were just arrange buddy systems and can you be my partner?” Of course I said yes. So I was his partner and he kept saying my name on the tour/ride thing. He let me hold the Triton too. He was so cool. Then we went on transformers which was ok. Then we finally went to his house after and I slept over.

Sunday, my friend and I went to Rebounderz for my brother’s birthday party. Rebounderz is a bounce place and it comes with basketball and dodgeball. It wasn’t organized dodge ball. What I mean about that is that you have to create your own teams and rules. The basketball net was two nets and two trampolines side by side and it was made to dunk. But not play a game. They were also building 2 new bounce things. They were building an obstacle course and something that I don’t know I just know it wasn’t open yet. After everything we had pizza made from there. It was actually good. Finally we had mint chocolate chip ice cream.

After my brother’s birthday, I went back to the AAU basketball tryout and I think I did better than last time. We did the same things as last time and on the 5v5 scrimmage I got the ball and the defender that was blocking me for some reason backed off of me and I shot it and went in. I know people make points all the time but I’m not the greatest at basketball. I think I might make the team. So I am really excited.

My latest sports fun

Recently, I went to an AAU basket balltry out sort of thing. I think I did really well. There is another try out Sunday. We did some dribbling drills, stretching, shooting, and defense. At the end we did 3-v-3 and my team beat all the teams. Then we did 5-v-5 and we lost. Some of my friends were there that I also play football with.

Also I had a football game Saturday. We won about 40-24. I scored three touchdowns. I also did a god job on defense. I went through everyone on on my touchdowns and one wasn’t even supposed to go to me. We went against a Lake Nona team so we are now 3-0. We are going against a team with a girl QB and she throws quick and fast and the people on her team are really tall so she throws it high up in the air.

Halloween as Connor Cook

1

I had an awesome time trick-or-treating. This year, I dressed up like Connor Cook. He is the Michigan State football quarterback. My friend was trying to be a character from destiny. Destiny is a video game that is like halo but more advanced. My mom posted a picture of me on Instagram and Twitter and Connor Cook liked the photo on Instagram and favorited it on twitter.

I got loads of candy. It started slow then I got faster.  I got about 11 butter fingers. I don’t like butter fingers. I like crunch, Reese’s, and kit cats. I like more but those are my top 3. I got a king size twix and 2 large packs of Reese’s. I loved Halloween this year because it was a different neighborhood and someone even recognized me as Connor Cook! One person said my friends looks scary then she says I look cute. The my friend’s mom told me everyone likes my costume and I said I didn’t look cool they say I look cute. Which is weird cause I don’t know who they are.

After Halloween I stayed at my friends house. We sorted our candy and we stayed up to 2:00 am playing PS4. It was fun. Then we woke at 10:00 am.IMG_4133 IMG_4135 IMG_4136 IMG_4138 IMG_4140

Crazy sports weekend

Friday night I had a football game after school. We went against an undefeated team, just like ours. We were supposed to play them earlier in the season, but that game was rained out.  Our coaches told us that this team was tough and liked to play tackle football, even though we were in a flag football league. No one liked them. Friday night we lost 20-6.  I made the only touchdown for our team.  It was our first loss. We were pretty mad.

Saturday was the championship and we had to play the same team again.  But this time, the game really mattered.  We had all of our best players for this game so we were ready with more power. I made 2 points and a big run. We won 23-6 for the championship. The other team got like 10 flags. I was really happy when we won. I got a trophy. After I went to my cousins house to sleep over because Sundays was running a 5k with my young cousin.
