I received the following email from Brendan Norris’s grandfather a few days ago. Brendan a former kicker from Poway H.S., has a little sister, Jessica, that has been trying to kick for years. Recently the Norris family made a move to Austin Texas. Jessica tried out for the team and this is what happened:
John. Our grand-daughter Jessica, moved to Austin Texas. 3 weeks ago.
She made the JV team (soccer) and then tried out for the JV American
football. She’s a freshman, probably weighs all of 85lb. Her high
school (Lake Travis High) won everything in Texas the past two years.
Anyway they picked her for the top JV team. Football in Texas is a
religion, like soccer in England.
Yesterday was the first time she’d ever worn a helmet, shoulder pads
or mouth-guard. She made two extra points!
