This week I had a fun opportunity, which I even got to share with one of my young teammates! Our young, stud outside linebaker, who we all call Å imi, and I had the chance to teach 19 kids at Christian International School of Prague a little football. That is a little American football. The unique thing about the group is that very few of the kids were Americans, so must of them had no idea about football, which was fun. I wish I would have asked where the kids were from too, but needless to say it was a very diverse group of children.
We started with learning how to throw and catch, then a couple of quick cone drills, and then a little pick up game. Needless to say, the game was a bit of controlled chaos! My favorite part was when I threw the ball to one of the kids, he caught it and then before he got tagged he threw the ball down field about 10 yards. The concept of a forward pass once was a little tough; in fact, this happened about 4 times in total in a 25 minute game. All in all, it was a great hour and some change and I am excited that Å imi was able to help me out! I would love for us, as a team, to do more of this more often to increase the popularity and maybe even have kids get interested in playing down the road. It is a bonus for me, because I get to do two things, 1) help the game here and 2) be a light to people through the game. Cool stuff.
