Gloating: Andrew made the coach selected team!!!

Andrew missed the first day of tryouts due to his last basketball game (see below), but made it to the second day of tryouts (out of four days) and he has already made the team! Anyone who knows Andrew, knows he is a pretty BIG kid for his age. His ability to move quickly at the size he is, really impressed the coaches last night. At the end of tryouts, I shook the coaches hand and thanked them for their time. I asked how they thought Andrew did and they smiled and said, 'he's already made the team. You don't even have to show up for any more of the tryouts. We will definetely be in touch with you.' I walked away with a smile from ear to ear. Andrew couldn't believe the good news.
After tryouts, we went to Chick-fil-a for their yearbook signing. Andrew was ecstatic that his teacher, Mr. L., was still there. He immediatly told him all about tryouts and how he made the team.

Andrew had his last flag football game on Saturday and though he lost, he had a really good season. Even the coach agreed. Andrew received MVP of his team! Great job Andrew!

Needless to say, I am very proud of Andrew. He has done a great job in school and has really shined on his basketball and football teams!

Andrew had his final basketball game last night with the Jr. Nuggets and won, 42-24! He had a great game last night. His dad, whom also coached, was very proud of his team and led them to a perfect record of 8-0. Great job Coach!! Tonight, Andrew has tryouts for Broomfield Blitz. He is trying to get on the "coach selected" team, however, if he doesn't make it, he will be on the North Metro Blitz because they are recruiting him hard! The coach for North Metro saw Andrew playing on an I-9 flag football team and sought out Lee to get him on his Blitz team. He's offered to pay all of the fees! Also, he wants Andrew to play for his flag football team's championship game! My "little" Boo, Boo is already being recruited! We are so proud of him!
