Blake soccer highlights

Blake’s been on the same soccer team (CyFair Fury, baby!) basically since he was four. He turns ten today!

At the end of most seasons we put together a soccer DVD for the team, with clips of each player doing their thing over a music soundtrack. The one for this just-ended season was about 15 minutes long, and had a section devoted to each player. Below is the part of the video (about a minute) which highlights Blake’s work.

I know I’m his dad, and thus biased, but this kid has been blessed with some great talent. Take a look at this.

(Bonus points go to whoever can identify the soundtrack for this clip).

  1. Bill: Thanks for sharing Blake’s great foot work all that play is paying off. BTW, when you guys come we have a national player from Kyiv who lives in Simferopol lined up to play some futball with Blake. Pray the weather holds up not sure if there is an indoor place here, but I’m sure Sergey knows all the places they can play. Currently at 9:30am the feel like weather temp is 10F. Pray our little meeting will hold up to his schedule, I know it will be disappointing if something comes up but a joy if it happens for Blake and those watching from inside the car!!! We won’t be sitting in lawn chairs that’s for sure.

  2. I have absolutely no qualms about this video – it looks completely legit. (I took issue with a Blake highlight reel a couple of years ago)

    I’m pretty sure I heard a little of Jeanna yelling in there somewhere . . .

  3. Ah, Quaid. The issue with Blake’s header highlight reel was only in your head. I guess I will have to take it apart frame by frame at high-res like the Zapruder film for you.

    By the way, I did do that at the time. Trust me, from head to goal, that ball was touched by not a soul.

    If your scenario don’t fit, you must acquit.
