Sent from my iPhoneSam was back on the court in the Eagles second and final scrimmage before the regular season starts on Monday. I wasn't there but Nicole said he started and played well in all four mini-games against Woodbridge. Edison won 3 of the 4. As you might also have noticed, he's sporting a Movember beard which is tough to see unless you look hard.

It's been a long pause since my last post and I need to get on it. We have had a couple weeks of low sports games but everything is gearing up for the upcoming Rugby and Basketball seasons. Sam was named 1st team district tight end at the end of the football season and he was quite pleased with that. The football season started with him being quite frustrated with the low number of footballs thrown his way. He saw that change quickly in the last few games of the season when he was catching a 7-8 passes a game. He worked hard all season and blocked and ran routes extremely well. He didn't have control of where the QB was throwing the ball but he showed that playing the position well on each down will lead to opportunities to get some throws his way, and he took advantage for those opportunities. He made the Varsity basketball squad for the third year and practices started for that the minute football ended. He has been a little hobbled be a sore knee and he tweaked his ankle screwing around in the locker room last week so he sat out the first scrimmage on Friday. He looks ready to play in the scrimmage on Tuesday and then the season starts next week.
Dylan has started three day a week Rugby practices and doing additional training with a sports trainer to get his leg back in shape for games that will start in January. He's a little more that 7 months removed from the ACL repair and continues to make great progress. He has really worked hard to get himself back in game shape and he and I have worked on kicking a bunch over the past few months. He really loves the game and his team. He wants to get back to playing to help them win another Virginia Championship and possibly a National Championship this year. I'd like to see that too.
