Like Griff said. That and I've hammered the following message into his school over and over again: you're smaller than the people you play against, if you go to ground you lose. Don't let them catch you.

To be fully accurate though I'd have to point out that he has different shoes for different fields and he is obsessive so he personally cleans all of his gear after each game.

I predict that LL will be a great success at whatever he undertakes. He has the desire and more important the discipline to do well.

I love it when you can tell kids are related. They look so much alike, even with the age difference.

and here are all my children and grandchildren together, plus one son-in law.

ETA: ah, rats--you can't see it. It's a scanned pic. Will have to see if I can get a digital copy from the ex.
