Football Wife’s Sideline Club – Football Friday

How long have you been a coach’s wife? Tell us about your team! What is the best and hardest parts about being a coach’s wife?

My husband and I were married in 1999. He became a coach in 2003 in Alice, TX. We are still there. He started out as a 5th & 6th grade PE teacher coaching junior high football and basketball. The next year he was still doing junior high football, but was doing high school baseball. After that he moved up to high school football and baseball and is still doing that.

I love being a coach’s wife. The players become a part of your family. My daughter has a blast picking on the boys like they are her brothers and they all pick back at her.

The hardest part is not seeing my husband very often especially during the season. But truthfully, it’s not so bad and I have gotten used to it. He’s home December and January and by the end of January, I’m ready for baseball to start and the same thing happens during the summer.

This year has been a rough year for us especially after my cancer diagnosis, but the coaching staff has really helped us out and allowed him to be with me when I needed it. They are even making plans for me to watch a game from the pressbox after my next surgery, so that I don’t have to miss it. 🙂

My new shirt

I don’t have it in my possession, yet, but I have ordered it.  It was a little pricey, but I couldn’t get anyone to do screenprinting with less than 12 shirts, so I used

If you click on the picture, I think it will take you to customize girl’s website where you can customize it to your own school. 

Now if someone knows anyone who does screenprinting and is willing to do only one shirt, please let me know.  I love to make my own shirts, but it’s too expensive for me to always order from this website.

September 2 – different week, same outcome

We had to add another loss to our stats.  The defense played really well, but the offense gave up two interceptions and a fumble in our 28-14 loss.  This coming weekend we play Port Arthur Memorial on Saturday.  I’m afraid that this outcome will more than likely be the same as the last two weeks.  Last year they ran all over us.  I’m hoping our boys can pull it together and get a win.  We need the confidence.

Again, I felt like the only person cheering in the stands.  My body is still sore and for a while I was afraid I shifted something in my implants because they felt weird Saturday and Sunday.  Today, they are still sore, but not as bad.  I guess I need to take it easy.  LOL.

Here are a few pictures from Friday night:
