Player of the Game

Last Saturday. Aj had another tremendous soccer game.
The reason this is so great is that as a toddler GGRC wanted him to attend a program that worked on motor skills. In school he qualified for adaptive p.e. therapy until last year when he was discharged for no longer needing services. Motor skills were never awful, but they were never great. he was the kid that was usually one the bench for a part of each baseball, soccer and basketball game.
Until now.
He is Mr. Soccer. He is clearly a very good player. He plays half back like a champ and is a team bonus by being left footed. He can run nonstop like a marathoner. He is fearless and agressive. Last week he did all this and scored a goal!

For the 1st time ever Aj was awarded "Player of the Game" not because he was a ranting quirky kid, but because he actually deserved it.
