Finally, for his third game of the season, I was able to attend and watch him in action. The first 2 games were "away" and too far for all of us to travel to. Last week, he had a "pick-6" when he intercepted the ball and returned it for a touchdown, so we were bummed to miss that.
This week, though, he was chosen to be one of the team captain's, so it was a good game to be present for. (I read recently on some grammar web site that it's actually OK to end a sentence with a preposition when you're not writing formally. Since I never write formally, this was very freeing for me!)
Anyway, he had a pretty good game, although the team lost. During the play I was actively photographing, he caught some sort of kicked ball.... and then promptly got flattened. The sound made me cringe.... wish that wasn't part of the game.

And he's so handsome, too.
