Kaden plays center on offense...
...and does a great job leading the offensive line blocking to create holes for the running backs.
But his true love is playing defensive end. He's down in attack mode...if you've got the ball, he's coming after you!
And trust me, you do not want Kaden coming after you! That's him, flying through the air toward the quarterback...watch out!
Our #68 plays sports with a passion that cannot be taught or coached. It's so much fun watching him play!
With one game left in the season, his 7th grade Raider team is undefeated. Here are some of my favorite photos of my favorite 7th grader in action...
He's definitely one of the leaders of his team...always being sure everyone is doing what they're supposed to do.
You can't see his number, but that's our Kaden with the quarterback sack.
Oh yeah, baby...pumped!
Papaw has always told the boys, "Go for the legs! They aren't going anywhere if you've got their legs!"
A frustrated opponent was ready to rumble after Kaden apparently held onto his legs just a tad bit too long. I'm sure Kaden did not say anything provocative to him....he would never...
Interception! One of the highlights of his season, second only to recovering a fumble in a tough opponent's end zone for a touchdown!
Kaden has so many gifts...he is extremely intelligent and has a fun, sweet personality.
But on the athletic field, his competitiveness shines through.
Watch out...if you've got the ball, he's coming after you!
