IRL Football

Thought it would be cool to post some pictures of the good ole' playing days if anyone wants to share some of their IRL football experiences. These are from the HS days way back in 2009.

I've shared more recent football pics when I've talked about semipro, but I'll throw some of my old high school pics in here as well.

Also this is my "claim to fame" when it comes to notable football players lol. Look at the last two players on the All-Area DL, we're basically equals :eyes::PSU:

Then this is from my first season of summer (semipro) ball when I lived near and worked in Madison (there used to be 4 summer leagues and 1 fall league so you could theoretically play football from February practices for summer league, through mid-November playoffs in fall). Below was not an uncommon sight for our team lol, I think we only had 2 or 3 games where we didn't have a bench clearing brawl to end the game. (They've since gotten kicked out of 3 leagues, for fighting.) The fall league disbanded the same year so I stuck playing with my fall team, since they moved to a spring league. (I'm #56 in the middle).

Also this pic isn't action heavy, but it's still one of the most unique pictures of my football playing days. I'm the RG, and it was the only time I've been the only white player on either side of the ball lol. In high school, we had only white players with the exception of one guy who's dad is Korean. (Knowing the demographics of the town, this wouldn't shock you, especially since I'm from rural, small town Wisconsin.) On my other/current team, we have a rather large mix of diversity since we're two teams who merged into one. And while we (Madison) were known as the "hood" team of the league and only had like 6 white players on our roster anyway, playing against a team largely composed of inner-city Milwaukee players, it was still wild that this occurred - just none of the other guys showed up to this particular game lol.

I didn't play football because "it was too dangerous" then proceeded to get like six concussions in ice hockey, so we see how that worked out for me

I'm sure I can dig some up when I get home or from Facebook. Probably have more pictures of me playing lacrosse actually. Not sure if I can find any of me in college though

This is from last year's school rivarly game (school got professional photography hence the watermark).

Some quality jockeying here. We drew the game 1-1. Definitely a highlight for me, got to play in front of a crowd of 600 or so.

 

 

The following 4 are from my club team this year.

A free kick I took against my old team. This game was one of the worst refereed games I have ever seen/played in. Fuck that ref.

Slightly disabled looking here but I made a good defensive flick-on header.

This was the first game after I shaved my head. Definitely added something to the intimidating center back effect I was going for.

Probably the most normal looking photo of me.
