Alex on the Field

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 18 May 2016 in Sport & Recreation and Portfolio.

The guy on the ball is Alex, our grandson. He is very fast and a good ball handler. His dad tells me that Alex practices ball handling most every day. It really shows. During this game, I stopped counting at 12 goals he made. For a guy not yet five, his coordination is impressive.

Also, as an admiring parent from an opposing team remarked, at a recent game, about Alex's hard shots, "He's got a lead foot." Better yet, he tries to get angles on the goal just like his favorite players at Manchester United do it.

Uh Oh!! Alex looks great here that's for sure. Sounds like he is on a special path! That is so cool! Beautiful shot, Steve. We have been at Amy's in Vermont for the past 3 weeks almost- catching Tyler's High School ball and Ryan's youth baseball. Tyler is really getting noticed by colleges for sure (he's a junior)

I like that its coed. Both of our granddaughters are big into soccer, but they separate the boys and the girls teams.
