Lindsey Wilson Camp Day 2 Good morning all!
Yesterday, we ate breakfast around , followed by an intense session that focused on defensive roles and positioning. He did an amazing job with the boys.
Directly after that session, we had lunch together.
With us having the early session, we had a lot of free time for sleeping and fortnite. Once halftime started, we walked down to the soccer field for session 2. Unfortunately, mother nature did not want us to practice and the boys plus 40 others came back to finish the rest of the WC game in our dorm lobby.
What a game to watch together, a lot of excitement and drama! After the game, we had about 4 hours to hang out.
The sleeping and forniting resumed. Check out my instagram coachshalash story to see the boys reaction to one of their teammates getting a win, lol. We ate dinner together and then relaxed before our two games. Once we got to the field, we were on a little delay due to a team not arriving on time.
The first of those was Madison Southern.
Coach TC went with The boys were very rusty and it took them time to adjust to the system, but they really shined in the second half. Madison Southern had one or two. The second game was against a mix of four different high schools.
They were talented and fast.
Our true JV team started the game. The guys balled out the first half. I wish I had taken a picture of how big they were compared to our guys. The first half ended After halftime, the opposing team scored two goals to beat us. Every player stood on the sideline and cheered for their brothers.
It was all real and not forced. Coaches that were watching even joined our side. Anytime something happened, you could hear the boys shouting and giving their teammates the love they deserve. So proud of these guys. Check-in ended around Directly after that, we went to the gym, where Coach Neto talked to the campers about what they should expect and his goals for the camp.
We then settled into our dorms. After a long period of down time, we carpooled to the football field for training session 1 focus on possession and directional play. The boys worked extremely hard. He was excited for us coaches and gave the guys a lot of one-on-one advice.
We got back to the dorms and went directly to lunch the guys pigged out. After that, we had our 2nd session of the day. This session focused on re-direction and changing the pace of the game.
The drills were extremely simple, but very meaningful.
The sun was shinning very bright and a few players crapped up, but are recovering as of today. After that, we returned back to the dorms to relax till our game.
Once we got to the field, we were informed that our team was split into two Varsity and JV. Every one played in the varsity game, but only 8th graders and a few 9th graders played in the JV. I put together the starting line up for Coach Rueben.
We ran a in both games. Once the game started, the guys jumped on UH. We dominated possession and really did a good job on moving the ball. Players were talking and moving off the ball.
We gave up the first goal on a tough break. As we were dominating tempo, UH countered and got a 1v1 chance.
The best part is how we responded. Tie game. Five minutes later, Tanner played Kings again and he buried it. Boom, We went into the half excited but honestly, a little over confident. After half time, we gave them two goals within minutes. The guys looked rattled and heads started to go down.
