Christian is only thirteen, but comes in at 6'3" and 176 pounds. He's tall, thin, and nothing but muscle! You can see the average height difference between him (#87) and most of his teammates. There is only one other young man that is about his same height, but a little more stout. Christian has had a few rough years in school with misbehavior, in-school and out-of-school suspensions, disciplinary tribunals, and laziness. Fortunately, Christian accepted Christ as his Savior this summer, and has become a totally different young man. His grades are back up, he's playing football (and playing extraordinarily well since this is the first time he has ever played!), and he's making better decisions overall. My frequent saying is "Jesus and football have been good for that kid!". I hope that he can continue in on a positive trend and not revert to the old behavior...I like this Christian so much better than the other! He loves his teammates, and they love him...an amazing camaraderie! They are 2-1 for the season so far, but face a huge adversary next week in the form of the Ringgold Tigers. But after the playing we saw yesterday anything is possible! GO WARRIORS!
Well, it is time to do some craft show stuff...AGAIN! So I will see you all tomorrow!
