I love kids!

Coaching flag football last night (5-7 year olds). Started working on the defense and the different positions. One of the new kids (Nicholas) to football was put at line backer and I tell him how he has to follow the ball and get the flag from the person with the ball. I emphasized on “watch the ball!”. The center hikes the ball to the quarterback and Nicholas runs right at the quarterback – almost like a blitz. The quarterback turns around and hands it to the left back – it was a sweep right. Nicholas just stands there looking at the quarterback. After the play I say “Nicholas, what happened? You were supposed to get the flag from the guy with the ball”. The kid looked completely stunned at me and says “yeah but he tricked me and gave the ball to someone else”.

I love it.
