Devin Ward takes the field to practice with the Pioneers

PLAINVIEW, TX (KCBD) -

Football is a game of athleticism, and of heart. That's what head coach Butch Henderson and the Wayland Baptist Pioneers pride themselves on.

And, I had to get in on the action.

"I did it a long time ago, but we are about to figure out if you can do it now. You were late to practice though, so you are already in trouble," Head Coach Butch Henderson said.

First-things-first stretching, and then team bonding.

"Coach Henderson is kind of old school, he has no game swag," said sophomore linebacker Michael Sawyer.

After that, we went into individual drills. I was with the tight ends.

I said, "I am too small for this."

But, it was an immediate success.

Immediately after, it was time to run some routes and I needed some coaching.

Dropping 2 out of my first 4 passes, it looked like I was over my head.

But, then I got my redemption.

What an honor it was to go out there and do this, but I am glad I-do-what-I-do.

You can watch what they do this Saturday at 2 p.m, as they host 25th ranked Webber International.
