Then, in the spring, they brought home a flier advertising flag football through the Marysville Junior Football Association.
This league is much more "serious" than the Y, but the boys enjoyed it nonetheless. I really appreciated how the coach put Matthew at center the majority of the time, if for nothing else so the kid could touch the ball every game.
Lucas was often put as a "decoy", faking that he got a pass and running so the quarterback could throw it to another player. Lucas thoroughly enjoyed this role. He thought it was cool to be a decoy. To each his own, I guess.
They finished the league as the MJFA Champs. They had an undefeated season. It was great to see them on a team, winning, and being a part of it.
