In the Life of a Fish: Mark Cabrera
October 22, 2008
Concussions, suspensions, sickness, progress reports, chapel credit checks…. It must be nearing the end of the season. It truly is a miracle and a testament to our loving God that any of us guys are even able to walk after the last thirteen games we have played. With the regular season coming to a close, our focus is quickly shifting towards post-season play as we finish the season with our final two home games and then a trip to Flagler. It is imperative that we win out for a shot to go to the NCAA Division II national tournament.
It’s been quite some time since my last blog, so let me fill you in a bit on what has happened these last few weeks…
Juan “Villagrande” scored the only goal of the match against his old squad, St. Leo, and was quickly choke slammed to the ground by our cage fighting center back, Jerris Israel Gay.
Dupree started his collegiate scoring in style as he put away the game winning goal against Nova Southeastern.
A personal favorite of mine happened just last weekend… With the score tied at 0-0 just over forty minutes into the match against Florida Southern, Cheyne Roberts plays a GLORIOUS ball into the box for our oncoming players… Unfortunately for the Moc’s, the ball slams off a defender and ricochets into the back of the net. Nick Rasek, (whom, as you may remember , recently stole the ball off Cheyne’s foot in Memphis) was the closest man to the defender and SPRINTS away from the goal mouth yelling and raising his hands as if he had scored the goal himself. The announcer was fooled by our Englishman’s trickery and announced that the goal had been scored by none other than Nick Rasek himself. We all got a good laugh when he finally admitted that he never actually made contact with the ball.
Unfortunately, I can’t procrastinate any longer, homework , the unnecessary evil that it is, is calling. With two big games this weekend I am sure to be posting again soon, especially after we play Northwood on Saturday. I have some making up to do for our last meeting against them, something about a red card and a player getting flipped out of bounds. Let’s let the past be the past though.
