The ECS Eagles made it to STATE!!!!
The game was at Tennessee Tech in Cookeville, and we played Knoxville Webb.
I met all of Justin's sisters in Nashville so we could drop off kids and all ride together.
Sweet sweet sweet Cassie volunteered to take mine and Rachel's kiddos back to her house so they could play with the Fish cousins! (Thank you Cassie!!!) That left Katie, Rachel, and me to have a focused, fun, adult time!!
HAHAHA! A funny happening! Don't ask!
(And yes, Katie, I did just post this picture!)
I haven't laughed so hard in so long that I had to capture the moment on the blog!
Me, Rachel, and Katie!
Mom and Dad Payne....Go, Fight, Win! Love that they support our Eagles so much!!
The whole crew including my brother-in-law, Tim, and his son, Caleb.
And here we go! The football game is about to begin.
Justin was up top in the box
Coach Thornton is down below talking to the defense.
They played sooo hard....
and at the end of the 3rd quarter we still had not scored. Webb was an extremely talented team!
Pretty much unstoppable...
Coach Walters regroups the guys and encourages them to get on the board!
Mom, Dad, and Katie watching intently...
Finally!!! The Eagles score!... not only one time,
But two touchdowns by the end of the game. So happy it was not a shut out.
Huddle at the end.
The Eagles played their hearts out.
A bitter sweet moment for the coaches...
So happy to be at STATE,
So sad to have lost.
The coaches go out to talk to their team.
Now for the award ceremony...
Eagles are State runners up! I'd say that's pretty awesome!
We are so proud of our Eagles, and can't wait until next year to try and do it all over again!
