Outside the Arena - First Scrimmage
Ian had his first scrimmage of the arena-football season yesterday at Midvale Middle School. They'll have an indoor scrimmage on Saturday, but for now they're out in the cold. It was very different than regular season football. The field is half the width and half the length so the plays are quick and tight. Quite a change for a team used to running sweeps.
Of course every time Ian was tackled I'd wait for him to get back up holding another broken shoulder, but he stayed in once piece. It was pretty ugly overall, but they were intense, hit hard, and started to get some plays down. I think they'll do well and have a good season.
