On September 3, family friend and Red Rabbit Racing Trainer Chris Block asked me a favor. His son David was starting at the Quarterback position for Dave's Freshman B team with Lake Zurich High School. And unfortunately Chris would not be able to attend the game as he was jetting off to New York's Saratoga Race Course to saddle Horse-Of-The-Year Candidate Giant Oak in the Grade I Woodward Stakes running that same day.
Accordingly, Chris asked if I would attend the game and capture the event on video - which I was only too happy to do. Meeting Chris' wife Linda at the game and with Chris' parents, we watched a very cool and confident David lead his team back from an early deficit to a very respectable 6-6 tie.
Highlight of the game was when David directed a 65 yard drive on the ground for their tying score. He led his team and earned the starting QB start for his next game. Picture right is of David ( #29) tucking a tidy handoff to his fullback on their game tying drive.
