The playoffs of the Great Midwest Football League start this Saturday. The Dawgs travel to St. Louis to take on the Midwest Chargers.
I’m not making the trip. It hurts, but I think that my season is over. It has been a wild ride, and I am so glad I did it. I met a lot of great guys that accepted me onto their team. I worked my tail off , and played some pretty good football.
I am proud of our team. We have been through a lot of turmoil this year, yet when the chips were down we came together. We’re riding a three game winning streak into the playoffs, and I’m not betting against my Dawgs the rest of the season.
Back in January, we started talking about rings. Well, we had some ups and downs, but we stuck together. We’re still a long way from a championship, but we’re in it. We have a chance, and when we were sitting on our home field after a second tough loss and a 3-4 record, we didn’t even think we had that.
I’m proud of my team. I wish I could be with them now that we’re in the playoffs, but my family comes first. Hopefully they all know I’m pulling for them. I don’t know if I will be able to make a trip during the playoffs, but I will be there on Sept. 11, when they come back to Chenoa to win it all.
