Ever since my baby boy was able to speak, he has been dreaming of playing FOOTBALL.
I would go to get him up in the mornings as a young toddler, and the first words out of his mouth would be, "I play football when I big." We would drive by football fields, and he would say, "I go football game tonight." Even his 4 yr old birthday party was football themed...and he hadn't even played a day in his life. It's simply an adoration he was born with.
Maybe it's from his Daddy who played football all the way through senior year? Needless to say, The Big Day had finally arrived. The Cha Cha Slide came over the speakers, and it was time to run through the Tunnel!
Surrounded by awesome coaches and a team full of studly little men + 1 little lady! (go girl power!!)
Almost time for kickoff...but 1st, time to salute our flag. Love this part!
Run Owen Run!
And he's off toward the goal line...

The guy looking straight ahead is the infamous Uncle Brad.
He loves football. His boys play football.
He told Owen, "When it comes to the football field, I'M your Dad!"

To succeed...You need to find something to hold on to, something to motivate you, something to inspire you. Tony Dorsett4 yr old birthday party
