You see…Team United came from humble beginnings and were underdogs at every turn. We as fans were typically outnumbered 3:1 by our opponent’s fan base but our cries rang louder and truer. Years ago, the tournament lasted 3-4 games because they couldn’t advance past the round robin stage. We’d lose our voice (still do) and spend the next day nursing sunburns and dehydration induced headaches (yup, still do).
As the seasons went by, I saw a team mature in every aspect. I stood witness as the team went from underdog to perennial contender. A United player used to play the QB position, went on missions, came back to play Center, and this year anchored the Right Guard O-line. Talk about the evolution of a team.
I’m aspiring to follow that career path, so far my coach hasn’t let me take a snap at center yet.
