As the J.A. Fair high school football team warmed up on the practice field - I met up with the head coach of the War Eagles - Mr. Donald Harris.
"What do you got going on for me today?"
"Ahh, not a whole lot, I might need some water or some candy. Just fit in where you want to fit in. You can throw some passes or work with the line. Walk beside me and you'll be good."
I was a quarterback in my high school days, so I thought I would help out the coach with some throws.
Coach Harris threw me into the fire and made me a scout GB - a guy who throws the ball around to help out the defense.
My opening play from scrimmage showed I had a little rust on me. I threw an ugly pick, but I stayed positive about it.
The more snaps I took, the more comfortable I felt. As my confidence grew, I had some time to coach up a few players.
"Keep your eye on it. That was good. That was good. Just keep your eye on it the whole time. You down a little bit when you got it."
The first half of practice was coming to an end and the coaches liked what they saw.
I wonder if I could make the cut for round two.
