1: Atherton Football
3: Going into the 2010 football season most of the players in the junior class could still remember the great season that we had in the eighth grade. That was back in 2007 but it seems like it was just yesterday. We were undefeated and it was a season that we will remember for the rest of our life and set us up to have a great future in football.
5: Many of of going into this season have played football with each other for a very long time. I started playing football in second or third grade and I can remember a lot of the people that are on my team now being on those teams.
7: We all knew that if we wanted to have any success on the football field we first had to put in a lot of work in the weight room. Starting in February we were in the weight room three times a week and once the summer started we hit the weight room four times a week.
9: Everyone on our team loves football. We are so excited to play. As soon as they even start talking about football we are ready to get the season started. Something that is fun for me before every season is going out and buying some new cleats. Wearing new cleats gets me pumped up for the season and ready to go.
11: Throughout the season certain things get worn down. As a linemen these are kind of like my battle scars. As a football player you are kind of proud of the different things that I go through during the season.
13: Coming into this season a lot of people thought that it would be another typical Atherton season. We all believed that we could change that but we didn't know exactly what was going to become the outcome of the season.
15: The highlight of the 2010 season was homecoming. We won homecoming in overtime and it was amazing. It was the best game that we played all season and in the end we came out with a great overtime victory against a good team.
17: In the end the 2010 season was a great one. It was our first winning season since 1987. We finished the season at 5-4. We missed the playoffs by just one game. The good out weighs the bad and we opened the door for the future. Atherton football is on the come up and should expect better things in the future
