Ryder's having a stellar year playing football. It's amazing how much he is learning. He started out the season as the new kid on the team, so they just used him to fill in on both offense and defense, but he has shown great improvement and is now a starting running back. I just love this picture. When Ryder first saw it his comment was, "Mom, Chase (red #77) is holding." Love that he understands the game.
Here he is again.
He can also block bigger kids.
And recover fumbles.
And of course do the fun stuff like have everyone cheer for you as you burst through a banner! (Yes, they do have their own Pirate Cheer Squad!)
Life on the football field is good!
