"It Has Been a Great Ride"

Like I said, no matter what the outcome, I am so proud of you, Tyler. You have been such an asset to the Mustangs. You have been a joy to watch. Today, the end of another chapter....the beginning of a new after football, now on with your Senior year of college, graduation and life! The tears have arrived, hours later, but just know how much I love you . I hurt for you, and I celebrate with you. You have given it your all. You are a wonderful young man. In your words, "It has been a great ride". Love, Mom

Back and forth, back and forth. Tyler made his 34th and final career touchdown, and the extra point kick was good, tying the game 31-31 with 2 minutes left. I didn't get a shot of that clock.
Field Goal....good...with 3.3 seconds remaining in the game. Final score 31-34-

Mustangs Lose Heartbreaker In NAIA Quarterfinals
Morningside’s hopes of moving on in the 2008 NAIA Football Championship Series were dashed when Lindenwood’s Halley Ferrell kicked a game-winning 25-yard field goal with three seconds left to defeat the Mustangs 34-31 in Saturday’s quarterfinal round action at Elwood Olsen Stadium.
Ferrell, who had missed three field goal attempts earlier in the contest, sent the seventh-ranked Lions into next Saturday’s semifinals with an 11-1 record. Sixth-ranked Morningside, which bowed out in the quarterfinals for the third year in a row, closed the books on a 10-2 season.

Always with a smile...Dad is proud.....doesn't always say it, but he is.
Joe, Barb, Tyler, Christi and AdamTyler and his BFF, Christi

Hi there! Thanks for visiting my blog a couple days ago. I've been REALLY far behind in blogging. I'm the one with the disasterous house! However, it all came together somehow and we had an awesome Thanksgiving!

You have a beautiful family!
