This year I switched baseball teams from the Riverbats to the Ohio Force. So far this year we have been doing great! This week we play the Butler County Bandits for a league game and this weekend we have a Memorial Day tournament at Flash fields, can’t wait! Also, next year I’m going to St. X for high school. Oo on Tuesdays and Thursdays I’ve been going to Spring conditioning for football. It’s been hard but really fun.
I’m sorry I haven’t blogged in so long. Ever since I started 7th grade, school and playing sports has kept me super busy. In the fall, I played football for Ridge Junior School. I played linebacker and quarterback. We went four and four so 500, not the best season but I still had a lot of fun. During the winter I played basketball for Ridge. I started as small forward. The basketball team also had an okay season. Sadly we lost in the first round in the playoffs. I still had lots of fun.
I’m starting baseball season again with the Cincinnati Riverbats. Right now we’re only practicing and doing baseball lessons but in six weeks the tournaments start. It’s going to be a great season.
I’m writing today because a teacher in Americus, GA used my blog as an example for her the class. The teacher told her students to read SportzBitz.com to teach them about blogging. To the kids in Ms. Nichols’ class – thank you for checking out my blog and leaving so many comments. I hope you all start your own blogs. Send me a link so I can check-out your blogs, too.
A few weeks ago I started playing football for Ridge Junior School. On Wednesday afternoon I rode the bus to a football game for the first time. We met at school at 2:30, dressed for the game in the locker room and took a bus to Rapid Run Middle School. It was cool to ride the bus with my teammates.
Our Ridge Junior High seventh grade team scrimmaged the Rapid Run seventh graders. We took turns running 10 plays on defense and 10 plays on offense. Everyone got to play a little. I played quarterback and strong-side linebacker. I connected with Johnny Noyen on a 15 yard pass. I also broke a block and tackled the ball carrier at the line. We didn’t keep score but we moved the ball enough to score two touchdowns and they didn’t score any.

My mom took some videos at Cooperstown Dreams Park. The first one is of the barracks that the Riverbats stayed in. The second one is of the ballpark. Cooperstown is an experience of a lifetime!!! GO BATS!!!
The Cincinnati Bengals started the season with the Hall of Fame game against the Dallas Cowboys in Canton, Ohio. The Cowboys dominated the whole game and the Bengals lost 16-7. Cincinnati’s defense looked pretty good. Pac-Man Jones played great after the first series. The offense couldn’t get anything going and struggled the whole game.
The Hall of Fame game was the first of five pre-season games for Cincinnati. The last time the Bengals played five preseason games they went all the way to the Super Bowl. Hopefully history repeats itself, except I want to see the Bengals WIN the Super Bowl this time. I have a good feeling about the 2010-2011 season. Cincinnati’s defense looks solid and the offense should be even better than last year. We needed a long-ball wide-receiver and we got T.O.!!! I expect the Bengals to have an awesome season.
GO BENGALS! WHO DEY!!
On Saturday, July 31st, my family, my friend Trece and I went to Bengal’s Training Camp in Georgetown, KY. We got sideline passes again this year – thanks Shawn and Kim!!! The Bengals looked really good at practice. Everyone was hustling and giving it their all. The rookie’s all looked awesome!
While we were watching practice we met Jarrad Trent, the brother of cornerback #25 Morgan Trent’s brother. Jarrad was a really cool guy and he promised to get us Morgan’s autograph after practice. Jarrad also introduced us to Leon Hall.
After practice was over the players stayed on the field for a long time and signed autographs. We got autographs from Terrell Owens, Chad Ochocinco, Jordan Shipley, Bobbie Williams, Tank Johnson, Dhani Jones, Cedric Benson and more!
