We had some big commitments in the last two days for us. I'm definitely glad we have some lineman that will be protecting me.
So for my scrimmage yesterday, let's just say we had a reality check. We didn't perform how we should've, and it was pretty embarassing.
Neither of the teams we played were ranked or anything and the first team we beat 14-10 and the second team we lost 14-7. That is not too good considering we are supposed to be the No. 1 team in the state. I think in the long run this might be very good for us because it was a very humbling experience. We know we still have a lot of work to do in order for us to win a state championship.
As for how I played, I had some good throws and some bad throws. I think I was 9-of-17 in the first game and 10-13 the second game with one touchdown. I got pretty banged up in the second game and landed on my shoulder/trap area a couple times and had to sit out the last series. It's still pretty sore so I'm not sure if the trainers will let me throw at practice tomorrow or not. Tomorrow is the first day of a real game week for us, so it's exciting that the real season is underway.

So tomorrow starts off what I hope to be a great season for. We open up at home against South County. They are a relatively new school in only their third year. They are not the biggest team, but they play with a lot of heart.
It's a game that we are expected to win but at the same time we're wearing the big 'X' on our jerseys in the state... everyone wants to beat Westfield. We have to take one game at a time and not get ahead of ourselves.
On Saturday I'm heading down to Blacksburg to watch the game. I'm not too sure what to expect out of it, don't know if it's going to be a very emotional game, or one of the craziest games in Lane Stadium. Either way, Tech games are always fun, and I'm hoping the atmosphere is the same way down in Raleigh.
Hopefully on the ride home I'll be able to catch the State game on the radio. I think they are going to surprise a lot of people this year and be a lot better than people think.
Thursday, August 30 (10:00 P.M.)
We won our opener tonight 45-6, and I thought we played reall well. It was a good way for us to start the season.
I was 5-of-5 for 56 yards with three touchdowns passing and one more rushing. It was really a short night for me. I played until the middle of the second quarter when the coaches put in my backup for a series. I came back and had one more series and was then done for the night.
It was a great opener for us, and we're looking to build on it the next few weeks.
