This time I headed west. I traveled through ranch land that quickly turned to farm land. You can see the Veribest stadium from quite a distance as the only thing around it is cotton fields and the school itself. Veribest is a town but people live scattered around the country side rather than in a central location.
I pulled in the back and parked amongst the players vehicles. The first thing I noticed as I walked toward the field was the goal post. I was surprised to find the tall beautiful goal post that were once there gone. I questioned Coach Mund as to why the goal post had been replaced. He chuckled a bit and told me they now had regulation goal post. I told him I realized the past ones were not regulation, but I was going to miss their statuesque existence.
I always enjoy visiting Veribest. First of all it’s not too far from where I live but they also have great lights for taking night action shots and nice facilities in general. A great concession stand area, nice track, ample parking, and comfy looking bleachers. I haven’t personally sat in the bleachers but they look comfy.
Oh and the music! The music on game nights has you moving because you just can’t be still. I have a hard time not dancing during the entire game on the sidelines. I also sing along so you may not want to hang too close to me as I often don’t sing on key. Practice music did not disappoint. I was jamming to Queen while snapping photos.
Everyone was relaxed and enjoying running plays and drills. It’s good to see players and coaches relaxed and enjoying each other’s company. I have seen that at all the practices I have attended so far.
We all have a story... a funny story or a serious story. This space is for those stories that make us laugh or cry or feel motivated.
