Thanksgiving week our kids only went to school one day, Monday. Tuesday was supposed to be a day of school, but our football team was playing in the C-1 State Football Championship Game in Lincoln. Therefore, school was called off for the day so that students, teachers, and staff could travel to Lincoln to watch the game.
On Tuesday, the four kids, Grandpa Bob and I left for Lincoln at 10:00 a.m. for the 2:45 kick-off. We left early to allow time to stop for lunch in Seward because their is NO eating allowed in the new car. Plus, we wanted to get to the game early, find a parking spot, and be able to wander around.
We cheered our hearts out during the game and the Norfolk Catholic Knights football team won the C-1 State Football Championship with a score of 24-13 over Boone Central/Newman Grove. This is the 3rd year in a row that they have won the C-1 title. This year's win makes them the first team in C-1 history to win 3 titles in a row. Plus, the senior class finished their high school football careers with a 50-2 record. What an accomplishment for this school and this team!
Now an update on Isaac. This young man was injured in a tackle during a football game during the state playoffs a few weeks ago and I asked in a post for prayers for Isaac. These prayers are still needed. He has been moved to a rehabilitation center in Lincoln to start occupational and physical rehab. Isaac was able to attend the championship game and watch his teammates win the game. He has had many good and bad days in his recovery. Isaac still has no feeling in his legs and his road to recovery is going to be long and hard. Please continue to pray for Isaac.
I took some great photos of the warm-up, the coin toss, the kids hanging out in Memorial Stadium, the tunnel walk and the victory celebration. Unfortunately, my camera and the computer had some communication issues and I lost the photos in the upload process. This made me so mad!
