Good News…… and Bad


Well, I have some good news and some bad news!  Which do you want to hear first?

The good?

The bad?

I’ll give you the good first!

The Judge Bulldogs beat North Sanpete 40 – 21!  It was an awesome game and a beautiful night for football!  Tyson was the starting fullback on offense and did sooooo good!  He made the first tackle of the game on kick off!  So cool!  He had three runs the first half, all with positive yardage and made a huge contribution on defense.  He is also the deep snapper (snaps the ball on field goals and punts) and did great!  I was more nervous for him at snapper than I was at running back or linebacker!  Well…. it turns out I should have been more worried with him at running back!  After the half, Tyson had two more great runs, the last one had him being tackled by at least five guys….everyone got up….. except Tyson.  A mother’s nightmare right?  Well it was his knee.  Not good.  And soooo disappointing!  He missed the rest of the game, but cheered the Bulldogs on from the sidelines. 

After a visit to the PT’s office on Saturday morning, it was determined that Tyson probably has a sprained MCL.  Which isn’t the ACL, and it isn’t torn…. so that is a GOOD THING!  He sees the orthopedic surgeon tomorrow, for a double check.  If you could say a prayer, or cross your fingers for a speedy recovery for my guy, we would really appreciate it!!  He can’t wait to get back out on the field!  Here are some photos from Friday night….

    SO sorry to hear this Ali. Sounds like what Connor did back in the spring, although he injured is ACL. He healed very fast and is not having any problems – so hopefully the same for Tyson!

    So sorry to hear about Tyson. Tough break — especially in the first game of the season. Hope he heals really fast. Happy Anniversary too! I thought about you Monday. Can’t believe it’s been 19 years!
