Charlie missed an entire football season after having surgery on his knee. His parents were concerned, knowing athletes had a propensity to suffer depression when kept off the field. Not sure how to keep Charlie engaged, they agonized daily over the best plan of action but nothing they discussed was necessary. Charlie refused to give up and never gave in. He was determined not to let his injury affect him mentally and strictly followed doctor’s orders for a full recovery.
The clock was ticking as Charlie counted down the minutes to game time. His nerves became more and more anxious while he laid in bed with nothing but calming psithurism of the autumn night to relax his mind. Nighttime seemed to quickly pass and the day was finally here. Army v. Navy rivalry has always been the biggest competition of the football season!
Charlie’s mom prepared a post-game feast of pot roast, cabbage, potatoes and more deliciousness in anticipation of a big win, then they all headed out to the game. Charlie stepped onto the field and played his best four quarters ever. After falling behind early in their first game, the team hustled back to take the lead and proudly claimed victory.
